Viv Richards, the legend of West Indies cricket has criticised ICC for its official admonition of the World T20 champions West Indies, saying that it has one rule for the Darren Sammy-led outfit and another for Indian cricket team.

“So, if you are the sole governing body of world cricket, then everyone should be coming under the same umbrella. The Indians do not play certain things the ICC may have to its rules. They totally ignore that and they have been getting away with it for years,” he said.

Top cricketers like T20 captain Darren Sammy, all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, Marlon Samuels had come down heavily on West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) for the way it functioned.

At the ICC Board meeting recently in Dubai, the world cricket governing body came out with a statement that West Indies players had been “inappropriate, disrespectful and brought the event into disrepute”.

“There are rules in the one-day game under the auspices of the ICC, like for instance the system where you go back to the third umpire and things like that,” Richards told.

“I am only trying to hit back because of what they are trying to do because of Sammy’s comments. They are trying to be a body that if you say this, it’s out of order then you’re going to be this and you’re going to be that,” Richards added.
