London:The game's governing body International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed having received the letter from Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) seeking arbitration to resolve the dispute concerning Indian captain Sourav Ganguly's six-ODI ban thereby putting to rest all confusions.

''Yes, we have received the letter from the BCCI this morning. However, I am not in a position to divulge the details of the contents of the letter or the matters mentioned there in,'' ICC project officer, corporate affairs Jon Long, said from London.

Asked how soon will the ICC respond to the letter, he said, ''I can't give you the exact time or date. But yes the concerned people are working on it.'' The letter signed by BCCI president Ranbir Singh Mahendra and addressed to ICC chief Ehsan Mani was sent yesterday afternoon.

The letter was the latest move by the BCCI in its two-month face-off with the ICC over the ban slapped on Ganguly by match referee Chris Broad for the Indian team's slow bowling rate in the Ahmedabad ODI against Pakistan on April 12.

It is worth recalling that appeals commissioner Michael Beloff had rejected BCCI's appeal.
