ICC Reconsidering Its Rotation Policy

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has deferred until October the rotation policy of appointing the governing body’s president. The ICC said in one of its statements that the board has decided to defer the proposed constitutional amendment to the nominations process for the election of president.

This comes at a time when the countries of Pakistan and Bangladesh were due to nominated according to the rotational policy. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief, Ijaz Butt has written a letter to the ICC on this matter. The recent World Cup held in the subcontinent saw Pakistan being excluded due to security reasons. PCB is worried that this will further dampen the spirit of cricket in Pakistan, which has seen a sharp decline in its reputation as a host nation for cricketing events.

Former ICC chief Eshan Mani has expressed his dislike against the move to do away with the rotational policy led by Sharad Pawar. He even raised his doubts on the matter, if India or the BCCI would influence the president’s selection or role. Sharad Pawar’s term as the chief is ending next year.

The new policy, if brought into action will be implemented from 2015 onwards. This is being seen as a huge boost to the BCCI which is already been accused to be ‘arm-twisting’ the ICC on various issues including the IPL and the matters concerned with it. BCCI, with its huge financial reserve along with the popularity of cricket in India has given it a lot of strength to be able to influence decisions.

Inspite of all sorts of talks related to ICC policy for electing its president, it seems that the ICC will be doing away with the rotational policy as most of its members do not have a problem with it. Nine of the ten test playing nations have reportedly signed the ICC’s proposal to change the rotational policy.
