The players may have been sold for millions of dollars but their runs and wickets on the field will not gain official recognition, according to the International Cricket Council.

Reports say that the ICC has decided to treat the Indian Premier League as a domestic Indian competition.

"The IPL is not international cricket, it is a domestic tournament. Therefore, the matches do not have Twenty20 international status," an ICC spokesman was quoted as saying.

The IPL is a city-based tournament with eight teams bought by franchises.

The tournament, which runs from April 18 to June 1, will mark the first time international cricketers will put aside their national allegiances to play for privately-owned teams.
