London:The International Cricket Council has asked the Indian Cricket Board to give it in writing that it wants to take the Sourav Ganguly suspension issue further so that it could be referred to the ICC Disputes Resolution Committee.

According to an official press release issued by the ICC last night, the BCCI has notified the ICC Executive Board that it intends to dispute the process that was used to deal withIndian captain's appeal under the ICC Code of Conduct.

"The ICC, through its President Ehsan Mani, has agreed that should the BCCI wish to take this matter further it must write to the ICC which would then refer this to the ICCDisputes Resolution Committee," the release said.

Earlier, Mani told PTI after the ICC Executive Board meeting that report appearing in India that the game's governing body was likely to reopen Ganguly's case regardingthe six-match suspension was "incorrect."

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

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

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