London: The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Friday discounted suggestions that India and South Africa would be suspended or banned from playing international cricket following their defiance of the game's governing body.An ICC spokesman said here that as of now no emergency meeting of the 15-member ICC executive board was proposed to be called to discuss the situation created by the unprecedented action of the Boards of India and South Africa in dumping ICC match- referee Mike Denness for the third match of the current India-South Africa Test series. The spokesman hastened to add that the situation was still evolving but no meeting of the executive board was planned before the scheduled one in Colombo in March 2002. "The situation may change in the next couple of days," the spokesman said. He said reports that Indian or South African cricket Boards could face suspension were 'speculative'. "There has been no suggestion that it is going to happen," he said.
