London:The International Cricket Council (ICC) today described as "incorrect" media reports in India that the game's governing body was likely to reopen Sourav Ganguly's case regarding the six-match suspension.

ICC President Ehsan Mani said the Ganguly issue did not come up for discussion during the Board meeting.

"Reports in India about the ICC reopening Ganguly's case are not correct," Mani told PTI after the ICC's Business Forum here.

He said the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) had written to the ICC on the Ganguly issue and the apex body had in turn replied to the Indian authorities.

"We are now awaiting a reply from them."

Ganguly was slapped with a six-match suspension for his team's slow overrate during the One-day series against Pakistan.

BCCI had appealed against the suspension by it was turned down by ICC Appeals Commissioner Michael Belloff.

Mani also said that the change in rules regarding One-day matches are on experimental basis for a ten month period.

"If we find that it is good we will continue with these new rules. If we find that it is damaging to the game we will not adhere to it."
