ICC seeking to change decision-making process

Published Add your comment

Last week, Cricket's administrative body, the International Cricket Council decided to completely review its management processes, which will include changes to how major decisions are made.

The current 'Big Three' process runs on empowering Cricket Australia, the England and Wales Cricket Board and the Board of Control for Cricket in India to make the decisions for the boards of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

The review of the Big Three is being carried out on the thoughts of newly appointed ICC chairman Shashank Manohar. The chairman has previously stated he doesn’t agree with “three major countries bullying the ICC” so cricket fans should expect some big changes in the future.

The ICC also announced: "In order to avoid any potential conflicts of interest and to follow best practice principles of good governance, the ICC would seek to re-establish, as quickly as possible, the 'independent' position of ICC chairman."

The new proposed process will offer the opportunity for developmental nations like Afghanistan and Namibia to have some input on how to improve cricket in their nations.

It also allows for some of the struggling cricketing nations at the moment, like the West Indies, to work with the ICC to improve the cricketing governance within the country, and work to once again become a powerhouse in international cricket.

A re-election for the chairmanship of the ICC is set to be held this June; however, with all countries in agreement, and the charge being led by India, you can expect the Big Three system to be gone for good.
