ICC feels the heat

New Delhi, May 16

A breakaway rebel governing body, the proposed T10 format and the lack of interest from broadcasters are among the "18 threats" that international cricket faces right now as per the report of the ICC's Strategic Working Group (SWG). 

"Yes, there has been a threat to ICC. A very well-known former cricket administrator (currently banned) along with an Indian TV channel and an Australian lawyer had approached a lot of players and officials in order to form a parallel global body," said a senior BCCI official on the condition of anonymity. 

The ICC analysis does not take names. However, it is interesting to note that in 2016, there were reports of sacked IPL commissioner Lalit Modi approaching officials from England and Australia to form a parallel body.  Another matter of concern is the proposed T10 format amid statements from stars such as former New Zealand skipper Brandon McCullum that Test cricket will not be sustainable in the long run. — PTI
