CSA to list revamp objections to ICC

(Cricinfo) Even while it stays engaged in negotiations with the BCCI, Cricket South Africa has laid out some fundamental objections to the ICC makeover proposal which includes the permanent membership for representatives from India, England and Australia in the proposed Executive Committee. It is learnt that CSA is preparing a detailed submission to be made to the ICC president Alan Isaac, going into details of their objections to the draft proposal for the revamp of the ICC, drafted by the BCCI, Cricket Australia and the ECB.

The precise details of the submission could not be obtained but ESPNcricinfo understands that the chief observations made to the ICC could include, apart from constitutional procedure and ethical codes, specifics around clauses pertaining to governance and revenues. These may involve raising objections to the proposals suggesting that the all-powerful Executive Committee have permanent seats for the Big Three (BCCI, CA and ECB) in particular. Or asking for clarity and accounting on the revenue distribution with respect to the division of the ICC revenues on a scale of graded percentages.

Regardless of the ICC’s release after the last Board meeting about “unanimous support around key principles” in its draft proposal, CSA, the Pakistan Cricket Board and Sri Lanka Cricket are the three boards that make up the main opposition to the changes. On Monday, the PCB’s governing board recorded its opposition of the proposals, while SLC issued a statement after an emergency meeting of its executive committee. The committee will meet, SLC said, with its “stake holders” on February 5, adding that, “with a view to safe guard the current rights and privileges of Sri Lanka Cricket as a Full Member of the ICC.”

CSA denied a report in ESPNcricinfo that talks were on between CSA and the BCCI with a view to reaching an agreement to push the draft proposals through and resolve the dispute between the two boards over CSA CEO Haroon Lorgat. CSA’s statement said they would “not consider deals that compromise our key principles”. CSA president Chris Nenzani said, “While we are engaged in discussions with the ICC and other Members, including the BCCI, to find an acceptable way forward, we have not and will not consider deals that compromise our key principles and integrity.”

The three boards who make up the main opposition to the Big Three draft proposals are said to be in contact with each other over their approach to the ICC Board meeting to take place on February 8.
