CSA asks ICC to ditch proposal

Johannesburg -  Cricket SA (CSA) has asked the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Monday to withdraw the draft proposal by the ICC finance and commercial affairs committee because it was "fundamentally flawed".

The official response of CSA to the draft proposal follows the weekend's joint session of CSA's board of directors and the members' forum, it said in a statement.

"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," CSA president Chris Nenzani wrote in a letter to ICC president Alan Isaac.

"The draft proposal is, therefore, fundamentally flawed as regards the process and, therefore, in breach of the ICC constitution."

The ICC executive board holds its quarterly meeting in Dubai on January 28 and 29.

CSA said the proposal included constitutional amendments and changes to ICC competitions, which should first be referred to the relevant ICC committees or sub-committees for proper consideration and to make recommendations to the ICC board.

The draft proposal is reported to give the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), Cricket Australia (CA) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) the majority say in the decision-making of the sport.

"In the circumstances, we propose that the draft proposal be withdrawn immediately given that the proper procedures have not been followed," CSA said.

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