The International Cricket Council said that they will review the current Big Three system. In a meeting at ICC headquarter Dubai it is decided that the current feudal system in which cricket rounds around India, Australia and England. And they take the big pie of the ICC annual income while other countries get the rest of the money. Other countries could not protest as the also get benefit playing with big threes.
Current ICC chairman Shashank Manohar said, “The decisions taken clearly reflect that we collectively want to improve the governance in a transparent manner”.
The current system drew flak from fans and critics as the ICC has become a business platform for the administrators of the big three. This happened under the chairmanship of tainted former Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President and ICC Chairman N Srinivasan and Giles Clarke of England
They amended the constitution for their own benefit, as a result, cricket has suffered a huge setback. Small countries with less population have suffered a huge blow and cricket has not advanced beyond the current sphere.
Besides that, the ambition of the game to participate in Commonwealth Games and the Olympics has also not progressed as Big Three don’t want to lose their income in playing in the multi-sport game.
The current chairperson Manohar has wished to change the-the current system. Former President N Srinivasan has been sacked from BCCI’s president post after Supreme Court of India found him guilty in a conflict of interest case. BCCI president Manohar has replaced him as an interim chairman of ICC.
