Dubai: The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday rejected media reports of having signed a deal with the newly floated Indian Champions League (ICL) T20 tournament comprising of retired former cricketers, scheduled to be held in the United Arab Emirates.

The league's promoters Magpie Group had claimed that they had signed a three-year deal with ICC but the world cricket's global body has categorically rejected any such claims.

"Reports claiming that the ICL has signed a three-year deal with the ICC are baseless and factually inaccurate. The ICC has neither given permission to the ICL to stage the event in the UAE nor it has the authority to sanction such events," an ICC spokesman told PTI.

"The ICL, as explained previously, needs to contact the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) for permission, if it has any plans to stage any tournaments in the UAE," he added.
