Looks like ICL will now have to be disbanded. I will be sorry to see this, because they formed a new group and would have dented some of BCCI's dominance. But it looks like that may not happen. They have very few players left now.

ICL unofficially closed now. They have neither players nor money.

The future of ICL was always in doubt as BCCI launched "IPL" that involved big names of current cricketing world.The marketing and sponsorship was always much attracted to IPL. Because of the recent ban of Pak players to play in India ICL suffered a major loss as their one full team got demised. ICL players have cut off their relations and even coaches have resigned. This was a good idea to challenge BCCI's dominance but IPL got better out of this. ICL lost its glamour because of less known Indian players and retired foreign players.I think they should officially declare the close of ICL as they are short of resources.
