NZ Cricket has points to bring up at ICC meeting

12:33 pm on 22 January 2014

The Board of New Zealand Cricket has come up with a number of points they'll take to the International Cricket Council as they attempt to keep a say in the way the game is run.

A draft proposal, to be discussed at the ICC's executive board meeting in Dubai next week, recommends handing over more control to the Australian, English and Indian boards in the boardroom and on the field.

The proposal would also give the so-called 'Big Three' a bigger share of the ICC's revenue pot.

One concern is that there'll be a competition split between the top and bottom nations.

New Zealand Cricket's ICC representative Martin Snedden says some of the points they'll be arguing will be that the current Future Tours Programme remains in place until at least 2020... a fair schedule must be in place beyond that... and revenues from ICC events and New Zealand Cricket's share must continue to grow.
