India's cricket board is threatening to stop its national team playing in International Cricket Council (ICC) events unless other countries agree to a proposal to change the way the game is governed.
India, England and Australia have put forward a draft proposal that recommends handing more control of the sport to them, seeks a change in revenue-sharing and asks that the future tours programme be dropped.
New Zealand Cricket has said it will not be bullied into accepting unreasonable inroads to its income and playing schedule by the sport's big nations.
In a statement, the Board of Cricket Control of India said it unanimously backs the proposal and ratifying it is in the interests of the sport.
It has authorised its representatives to enter negotiations about participating in world cricket events, subject to the proposal being approved by the ICC's board.
The Indian cricket team was beginning its third one day international against New Zealand in Auckland on Saturday.
