Melbourne: Dec 6, 2011
Cricket Australia is set to be rocked by sweeping changes as its Board could be forced to sack itself when a 'secret report' recommending complete overhaul is handed over to it on Wednesday.
According to a report in the 'Daily Telegraph', "David Crawford, who re-designed the Australian Football League hierarchy in 1992, will present a secret report to the CA board, recommending sweeping changes."
"It is understood that the report recommends the 14-man board of elected state delegates be replaced by a nine-man independent commission."
CA, which carried out a major overhauling of the team management by roping in Australia's first foreign coach in Mickey Arthur recently, is expected to undergo some changes itself after the fresh report.
"Each state will be asked to nominate one board member who has no state or club ties and the six new delegates will then appoint three further independents with specific expertise," the newspaper reported.
CA had engaged Crawford and former AFL Commissioner Colin Carter to suggest administrative changes.(PTI)
