    Plan to neutralize BCCI

    Seeing CSA's fate as they tried to take BCCI head on and what happened to ECB few years ago, its clear that no one board is able to tangle with BCCI. So the rest of the boards have to work together to introduce any change to the status quo.

    Option 1: Boycott BCCI and kick them out of ICC. Not really an option as observed by CSA current quandary. It will be case of, surgery is a success, but the patient is dead.

    Option 2: Implement Woolf report w/o involvement of BCCI. Pool all the revenues besides BCCI's share, distribute it equally among the members. This creates an even playing field for the rest of the members and eliminates their need to dance to BCCI's tune. This will allow the game to become more popular and grow the revenue from the increased popularity and it become a true world wide game. this will also eliminate BCCI's hegemony.

    Of course, this will mean some short term pain for some of the boards, but it will be a small price to pay for their stated long term goal, i.e., betterment of the sport of cricket. As the say charity begins at home and its about time, the old powers of cricket showed some real leadership instead of paying lip service.

    will this happen anytime soon?

    No. Good luck telling the ECB that they have to share revenues equally with Zimbabwe.

    This is not going to happen.. Ultimately BCCI is not doing anything that any other cricket board in their position wouldn't do...that the neighborhood gangster or the school yard bully does not do..
    Its pretty much the most fundamental truth about human civilization since the dawn of the apes.
    When you have the power, you flaunt it and use it to suppress the ones without the power. That's pretty much how it works..that's how Apple does in the smartphone market, what Google and Facebook does with the internet, what Coles and Woolworths do in the Food and Agriculture industry in Australia.

    My criticism is not so much of BCCI as it would be silly to criticise a bully for bullying but those like Bhogles, Dravids, Manjrekars, who moralise and chastise and tell the rest of the world what test cricket needs and what ICC should do, so blinded by their nationalism that they are unable to see the single biggest force behind destabilizing test cricket.
    If you are a strong nationalist and unable to criticize your own cricket board that is also fine, but then shut up and stop telling us how much you love test cricket and what should be done to fix things.

    All thats going to happen is the BCCI will get 9 votes,and no one will want to play S Africa,especially when they get rid of the rankings.

    When this new deal is in power S Africa will not be kingpin anymore India will,the big 3 will be the sides teams want to play.

    BCCI will punish S Africa and won't play them,the BCCI hates the SACB and its boards members. BCCI may also encourage teams not to play S Africa as punishment.You are saying this is a bit far,well its the BCCI and it does want it wants,and it holds grudges.

    Remember the Symmo is a monkey thing,BCCI threatened the CA to drop the charges or face a walk out,CA complied with the horror of the Aussie team and all its fans.

    I think BCCI will get 9 bilateral agreements due to the 9 votes,Pakistan who opposed now gets a bilateral agreement they will come on board.






















































































    The future does not look rosey for S africa,as it prepares to go alone.

    Well no cricket board is a saint thats for sure.

    Its pretty clear who the bad guy is though.

    Btw, if I read one more post justifying acting like a **** with 'its just human nature', heads will roll.
