PCB to take final call on ICC governance issue

The Managing Board of the PCB will meet in Lahore to take a final decision on ICC governance issue that put India, England and Australia in control of the world sport. A source in the PCB told that in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka Cricket and Cricket South Africa had reaffirmed that they’d be ratifying their decision to support the recent widespread modifications of governance in the ICC, which effectively hands over controlling power to India, Australia and England.


The cricket boards of Pakistan, Sri Lanka and South Africa had abstained from voting in the very last executive board gathering of the ICC in Singapore where the 7 other full member Test playing countries voted in favour of the sweeping modifications. “The ICC chief executives committee meeting is due to be held in Dhaka on April 5 and 6 while the executive board will meet on the April 9 and 10 in Dubai where the changes which are already approved will be given final and legal cover,” the source said.

“Sri Lanka and South Africa have conveyed they intend to now vote in favour of the changes at the next board meeting so the PCB has also decided to now finalize its strategy after discussions at the MC meeting,” the source said. The source, who is aware of all changes connected to the ‘Big Three’ issue, said under recent modifications in governance even if Srinivasan steps down from BCCI president’s place, the BCCI had the right to nominate its nominee to head the ICC from June onwards for a two-year period.
