New Delhi:The Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) today denied knowledge of English county club Glamorgan seeking captain Sourav Ganguly's services for two months and morefrom June 1.

"We have not received any request from the player, nor has the county approached us seeking his release," BCCI President Ranbir Singh Mahendra told PTI here.

Secretary S K Nair too pleaded ignorance on the matter.

News reports from England said Ganguly, facing a six-match ODI ban, has signed to play for Glamorgan in June and July and the contract could be extended if Ganguly'sappeal against the ban was to be turned down.

The report said Glamorgan were awaiting an official confirmation from the BCCI exempting him from attending the team training camp in July.

"We are delighted to have secured his services," AFP quoted Glamorgan chief executive Mike Fatkin as saying.

"It appears he has been given leave to miss the Indian training camp in July, something we are expecting written confirmation on shortly, and although we are signing him onthe basis of him being available until the end of July, there is a strong chance that he will be with us for longer."
