The Federation of International Cricketers Associations (FICA) is in complete support of current BCCI President Shashank Manohar’s plan to disband the infamous Big Three Administration. Manohar recently spoke about the highly controversial issue regarding the overall functioning of the game and said that he was not in favor of having the Big Three model. Manohar had also said that cricket was an independent sport, and all cricket playing nations should have their say.
“FICA and the players it represents join the vast majority of stakeholders in international cricket by welcoming the words of Shashank Manohar, the new chairman of the ICC,” Tony Irish, the body’s executive chairman, recently told Wisden India. “FICA has consistently maintained over the last 18 months or so that international cricket will be worse off in an environment where the rich get richer and poor get poorer, and where the smaller countries are bullied into lesser positions.”
“International cricket needs as many countries as possible to be strong and competitive and for all countries to strive towards making cricket the best it can be global.” “I look forward to engaging with Mr Manohar on issues in which we believe FICA can work on constructively with the ICC, in the best interests of the game,” Irish said.
“All of our players, and the players associations they come from, acknowledge India and the BCCI to be the superpower of the game, and the IPL remains a career objective for many of them. It is equally important to them, however, that the game remains healthy and able to grow in their home countries, too. This will make the global game stronger,” Irish concluded.
