    A Telegraph article from earlier this week gives a bit of back ground to this

    SLC membership of the ICC reinstated. It is now entitled to full funding and attendance and voting rights at the Board and Full Council

    Yeah IIRC the new BCCI head (I cannot for the life of me remember his name right now. Manosomething?) has said a few things along the lines of this being stuff that needs to be looked at, so I guess this is the result. CA et al are definitely just falling into line in that respect.

    Hope they spread the funding evenly again, and ring-fence the Future Tour Programme.

    First of all Big three was a terrible idea, and well done Manohar for having gotten rid of it.

    Cricket can only work if all members are equal, and in the big three that was definitely not happening.

    Hopefully they can now find some structure in the FTP, and make the test rankings fairer, and more meaningful. Like right now India suddenly became #1 without having played a singe test, and can lose the #1 ranking without playing a single game if Aus win the series in NZ.

    False dawns guys... This Manohar was part of the group who threw out Dalmiya and created IPL etc etc. Lodha commission has kicked BCCI's ass and now these guys are trying to just divert attention with these reforms. Basically anyone who was playing ball with Srinivasan is being hit. The Big 3 came in under his supervision so they are being kicked out.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    I understand that. And I am certainly more cynical about these matters now. I don't have very high expectations from any administration, so given that in mind, what impressed me about Shashank Manohar is that he actually mentioned the term 'conflict of interest' when talking about his roles as head of ICC and head of BCCI. This is something you would never hear from CA, or ECB or Srinivasan for years. They would never even acknowledge it, so it was never part of the conversation.
    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    Fantastic news IMO and about time..Good decision by the current president showing he has a love for the game rather than for his own wallet. The game is bigger than any individual and it cant be held hostage by anyone..
    @spikey - yes we were suspended until after "free" elections took place in tersm of our board - not sure if that was the case but they have happened now so we have been reinstated apparently.

    yes and no mate, I agree to a certain extent that India/Australia and England should get more as they contribute more. Also I cant speak in terms of other boards struggling finacially but it would also force boards like SL to manage their funds more appropriately and reduce the BS that goes on. I was amazed last time I was in SL and watching a match at the Premadasa at the number of S class Mercs in the board members car park ! I know a couple of domestic level cricketers there and the system is in chaos and they get paid a pittance in comparison..Hopefully our new board will think more about the game than themselves..

    fully agree with you about the ring fenced FTP mate..

    Yeah that is a very good point, hope there can be some type of corporate governance structure put in where an auditor has to sign off on individual boards accounts (same as any other corporation). Think there was something similar revealed in Death of a Gentleman by Jarrod Kimber + Sam Cook (which I'd advise you to watch) about Kenya or Zimbabwe's board doing the same with cars as well.

    I must've imagined India thrashing South Africa.

    Big Three structure meant a lot of different things and it will be interesting to see which ones change and which ones don't, but what I am most curious about is whether Furball's new found love for India (a post 2014 phenomena) lasts or not from here onwards.

    Yeah but he is only using it when it is convenient. Remember he was the President who modified the law to allow Srinivasan to hold CSK and BCCI Office in the first place. As I said, it is just a case being seen to be doing the right things without actually doing anything. Watch them squirm and push off the Lodha recommendations or how Ganguly and his buddies are getting clout to understand that literally nothing has changed with BCCI, except that the president is more media friendly and much less arrogant. Doesn't really mean he is any less of a **** who just wants to make money out of the game though.

    A caveated yes to the FTP from me. I think there are a number of benefits to allowing scope for the arrangement of seperate bilateral tours outside of the FTP, but greater certainty and long term planning of the touring schedule would be useful.
