The Board of Control for Cricket in India has denied constitutional reforms along with the proposed revenue model of the International Cricket Council. In this regard, the BCCI has also sent the letter to the ICC. With the 11-page letter to the International Cricket Council, the BCCI gave a memento to ICC of the ‘Member Participation Agreement’ signed on October 12, 2014. COA member Vikram Limaye has said in the letter written to ICC CEO ‘Dave Richardson,‘”If the Constitution of ICC and the proposed financial model are approved, we can use our rights and legal provisions under MPA contracts. We are confident that the ICC will look into the new constitution and financial model under MPA so that we could not have to use our statuary laws. You should tell the ICC from our point of view with urgency to take action. ”
According to sources, the administrators’ committee has decided that the financial interests of the Board in international cricket will not compromise on any aspect. In the month of April, the ICC will think again on reforms, but the BCCI’s open defecation seems to ruin the ICC’s planning, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh Cricket Board have also expressed their protest against the new reforms.
According to a news portal, former ICC chief ‘Shashank Manohar’ was aware of BCCI revolt. Therefore he resigned from his post, as the England and Australia will also gain benefit from the old model. Hence, in such a way BCCI with the support of Sri Lanka and Bangladesh is seen to be more superior than ICC. While finding the consequences of this rebellion, the ICC World Test Championship may also be in danger.
