The ‘Big Three’ move by the ICC in 2014 received much criticism as England, Australia and India were granted more executive powers by the council. The three cricket bodies were awarded a greater share of the revenue from ICC tournaments, inviting criticism from all over the world for this controversial move.
The move failed to last long as the BCCI was dealt a major blow at the ICC meeting in Dubai, when it was heavily out-voted due to the governance structure and revenue model. Few years after the incident, former England skipper, Nasser Hussain has said that it’s ironic that teams like Pakistan and West Indies, who suffered the most because of ‘Big Three’ move, are now stepping up to help the ECB.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
