(MENAFN -Arab News) CAPE TOWN: Cricket South Africa (CSA) has demanded immediate withdrawal of a “fundamentally flawed” draft proposal that would effectively place Australia, England and India in charge of the world game

Put forward by a working group of the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Finance and Commercial Affairs committee, the proposal recommends international calendar and revenue share being controlled by the three boards who bring the most income to the game

In a letter to all full members of the ICC and its president Alan Isaac, CSA president Chris Nenzani said more consultation was needed into the merits of the proposal and felt the ICC has not followed its own setout procedures in this case

.”.. these proposals should first be referred to the relevant ICC committees or sub-committees for proper consideration and to make recommendtions to the ICC Board,” Nenzani wrote

“Although there is nothing to prevent a review of the ICC funding model or finances, the proposal self-evidently is inextricably tied up with a fundamental restructuring of the ICC, which has far — reaching Constitutional implications

“The draft proposal is, therefore, fundamentally flawed as regards the process and, therefore, in breach of the ICC Constitution

“In the circumstances we propose that the draft proposal be withdrawn immediately given that the proper procedures have not been followed

“In our respectful opinion, a more considered, inclusive/consultative, and properly constitutionally-ordained approach is required.”

CSA’s response follows that of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), which confirmed on Monday it would oppose any structural overhaul of world cricket’s administration.
