West Indies Cricket news. A “working group position paper” from the ICC’s Finance & Commercial Affairs (F&CA) proposed a structural overhaul of world cricket, which would give decision-making power and a larger share of revenues to the BCCI, the ECB and Cricket Australia.

The “position paper” also recommended changes in the ICC’s revenue distribution models, administrative structures and the Future Tours Programme (FTP).

The proposal created a stir in the cricket fraternity with arguments suggesting that the concentration of power in the hands of the three boards could impact the game significantly.
