BCCI slams new ICC constitution

New Delhi, March 20

Terming the changes in the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) new constitution as “vague and unclear”, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) CEO Rahul Johri has expressed BCCI's reservations over the changes. Johri, in his mail to ICC on Sunday, said the new constitution would change the nature of ICC and adversely affect the autonomy of its members.

“The proposed ICC constitution seeks to convert ICC from a members’ organisation to a supra-national regulator,” Johri wrote to ICC chief operating officer Iain Higgins. “This is a fundamental change in the nature of the ICC that adversely affects the autonomy of its members.” 

Highlighting the Indian board’s reservations, Johri also laid out BCCI’s key observations, which include taking away the vote of the ICC chairman at the board of directors’ table (previously used as a tie-breaker), making the membership committee independent and external to the ICC, and reducing the Associate presence on the board from three to one, and including a non-voting former player.

But more than the rest, BCCI reiterated its Committee of Administrators (COA) representative Vikram Limaye’s objections to the proposed new financial model, terming it as “arbitrary” and not “agreeable”. 

“The ICC is seeking to change the existing financial model without having any scientific formula or technical analysis behind the proposed changes.”
