Petition to oppose International Cricket Council reorganisation

293 Signatures Goal: 1,000

To the Chief Executives of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, the England and Wales Cricket Board and Cricket Australia.


This petition calls on you to:

1. Cancel plans for a new ICC Executive Committee with three boards as permanent members.

2. Cancel plans to increase the revenue share of the three proposed permanent members of the Exec Ctte at the expense of the 103 other members.

3. Cancel plans for other measures increasing the power and share of revenue of the BCCI, ECB and CA at the expense of other boards and the good of the game.


The International Cricket Council's strategic plan for 2011-2015 (http://icc-live.s3.amazonaws.com/cms/media/about_docs/518b6b2d624aa-summary_icc_strategic_plan.pdf) clearly states that the organisations values are: Fairness and Integrity, Excellence, Accountability, Teamwork, Respect for diversity, Commitment to the global game and its great spirit. These are clearly not respected by the proposals leaked to the media on 17th January 2014 (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci-icc/content/current/story/710723.html).


The cricketing world is a small one and the game's long-term development cannot be safeguarded when administrators insist on an approach placing self-interest ahead of the wider good of the game The proposals effectively sideline 103 of the ICC's 106 members. Cricket supporters deserve better than that the sport they love be governed by an oligarchical cartel.

    We need change and more democracy; not more power in the pockets of three countries.

    If this goes through, it will ruin cricket from the top down just as the Premier League has done for football. Have you no sense of responsibility towards the sport?

    A disgraceful land-grab by the three self-proclaimed 'biggest' boards in cricket. If implemented, this will be the end of test cricket itself. We need change, but not this one.
