The motion was supported by only England, Australia and New Zealand. However, the <a href="/tags/BCCI/post" target="_blank">Board of Control for Cricket in India</a> (BCCI), along with Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, voted against it. Furthermore, West Indies and South Africa decided to not vote at all.<br /> <br /> As a result, the Indian board is likely to send a letter to ICC, asking explanation on how a defeated motion can be made into a rule, according to <em>Times of India</em>.<br /> <br /> Presently, two new balls are used which has been creating problems for sub-continent spinners.<br /> <br /> According to <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tags/ICC-Chief-Executive-Committee/post" target="_blank">ICC’s Chief Executive Committee</a> (CEC) terms any resolution needs "two-thirds of the aggregate number of votes exercisable by the full member committee" to be passed. <br /> <br /> Sources inside the Indian board ruled out any more chances of voting as the motion has already been defeated.<br /> <br /> "The board representatives will talk to the countries like Australia, New Zealand and England to give the rule a burial," a source said on Tuesday.
