CSA denies ‘unanimous support’ for ICC’s ‘Big Three’ proposal

Johannesburg: Jan 29, 2014

One of the first to oppose a proposed revamp of the International Cricket Council’s (ICC‘s) administrative structure, Cricket South Africa (CSA) has denied the governing body’s claim that there was “unanimous support” for “key principles” of the plan which would cede executive decision-making to India, Australia and England.

“The support is subject to the approval of the respective boards of the member countries after which a final decision will be taken at a follow-up ICC board meeting on February 8,” CSA said in a statement.

ICC said its board had unanimously supported certain principles following a huge outcry over earlier proposals that could have seen India, England and Australia take effective control of world cricket.

After South Africa became the first ICC member to object to the initial proposals, they have now been amended to include the world Test leaders in the new Test Match Fund.

CSA has been concerned about poor revenues if the original proposals had been implemented. But this and other concessions to the other seven members nations of the ICC do not appear to have led to unanimous support for the new plans.

“We will be convening a joint session of our CSA Board and certain key stakeholders as soon as is practically possible to consider the principles,” said CSA President and chairman of the board Chris Nenzani.

“One of the hallmarks of our new administration has been an absolute adherence to the principles of good corporate governance and we do not intend to deviate from this. Our position will be subject to full consideration by our Board and other stakeholders.

“No further comments will be made until the CSA Board meeting,” he added.
