Sri Lanka to oppose changes

The Sri Lankan Cricket Board on Thursday said it would oppose the proposed ICC position paper, a radical restructuring of the ICC aimed at giving more revenues to the BCCI, CA and the ECB, according to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) secretary Nishantha Ranatunga.

“The executive committee agreed to write to the president of the ICC and inform them the unanimous view of the executive committee of SLC is that the said position paper needs to be deferred and reconsidered on a future date,” an SLC release said.
SLC thus became the second governing body after Cricket South Africa to publicly oppose the draft.

Another cricket board that has adopted a stance on the paper is the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).

“The Board has taken a position in the best interest of West Indies Cricket and which president Dave Cameron will present to the ICC Board meeting next week in Dubai,” the WICB spokesperson said.

“The WICB views it as prudent to present the Board’s position to the ICC meeting before making any further public comment.”
