The International Cricket Council (ICC) will make a final decision on a new financial and governance structure at a meeting in April after agreeing “in principle” to reverse a move to put the boards of Australia, England and India in charge of the game’s administration.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) voted against the proposal to perform a u-turn on the 2014 decision after failing to defer the vote during the ICC board meeting in Dubai.
“Today was an important step forward for the future of the ICC and cricket around the world,” ICC chairman Shashank Manohar said. “I want the ICC to be reasonable and fair in our approach to all 105 Members and the revised constitution and financial model does that.
“There are still details to work through and concerns to be addressed, but the principle of change is agreed and not for debate.”
