The Delhi high court on Tuesday barred the unsanctioned Indian Cricket League from filing a suit against the Board of Control for Cricket in India in the United Kingdom courts.

Essel Sports, which launched the ICL, had sent a legal notice last month threatening to file a suit in the High Court of England & Wales in London, seeking various reliefs and damages against the BCCI, the England and Wales Cricket Board and the International Cricket Council for not recognising it.

"In a suit filed by the BCCI before the Delhi high court for an anti-suit injunction against Essel Sports Pvt Ltd (Indian Cricket League), the Delhi high court on Tuesday passed an order restraining Essel Sports (ICL) from filing a suit in the courts of the UK against the BCCI," read a statement from the BCCI.

Essel Sports had said in the notice that if they did not receive a full and satisfactory substantive response from the BCCI by December 7, 2009, they would file proceedings in the courts of England.
