BCCI president N Srinivasan to head the ICC board

The International Cricket Council (ICC) passed key proposals on Saturday, effectively placing India, Australia and England in charge of the game.

The Board Of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI) president N. Srinivasan will chair the ICC board from July while Cricket Australia chief Wally Edwards will head a newly-formed executive committee as the ICC decided to revamp its governance, competition and financial models.

Pakistan and Sri Lanka abstained from voting, citing need for more time to discuss the proposals, while other eight full members backed the move, the ICC said in a statement after the meeting in Singapore.

The proposals had invited widespread criticism with some suggesting that the 'Big Three', who will get a major share of the revenue, will take over the sport at the expense of the other cricketing nations.
