BCB’s position on the proposed constitutional change to the process for the nomination and election of the ICC President
It has come to the attention of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) that sections of the local and international media have carried different versions regarding Bangladesh’s position on the proposed constitutional change to the process for the nomination and election of the ICC President which will be discussed at the ICC Executive Board and Full Council meeting in Hong Kong this week.
On this subject the BCB’s stance is stated below:
The Board, in principle, agrees on the proposed amendment of ICC Article of Association regarding abolishing the present rotation system for the post of president of the ICC.
However, the BCB feels that an equal and fair opportunity should be given to all existing full member countries to avail the privileges of the current rotation system.
BCB President AHM Mustafa Kamal in a letter to ICC President Mr. Sharad Pawar on 12 June, 2011 has reiterated the Board’s view that ‘Bangladesh would recommend that the proposed amendment comes into effect only after the completion of the current rotation cycle’.
