Default New proposals at ICC

Father of all proposals -
http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci-icc/c...y/1022445.html
Quote:
there is a favoured option, involving the introduction of a top division of seven teams and a second division of five teams. It is likely that the plan would see one team promoted and relegated in each two-year cycle, though it remains possible that a second team could be promoted if the ICC embraced a play-off model with the sixth team in Division One playing the second team in Division Two.
BCB reaction -
http://www.espncricinfo.com/banglade...y/1027499.html
Quote:
"Two years ago when the Big Three came up with the position paper, the BCB accepted it because they calculated that they would get greater revenue stream. ... "I am against the two-tier system that is being proposed. I think it will pull cricket development backwards. Inclusiveness doesn't work at the games' premium level, which is Test cricket."
Then there was this for ODIs -
http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci-icc/c...y/1027577.html
13 team league for ODIs.
Quote:
Under the plans, each team would play a three-match series either home or away against every other country, amounting to 36 ODIs each over a three-year basis. The fourth year of each cycle would be reserved for World Cup preparation. ... The system, if adopted, would also be used to determine automatic qualification, and seedings, for the World Cup. ... The identity of the 13th team is likely to be altogether more controversial. The ICC are known to be impressed by the game's popularity in Nepal, and are considering promoting Nepal regardless of their overall standing in the 2015-17 edition of the World Cricket League Championship, although this is just one option.
And last but not the least, proposal to bucket TV rights -
http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci-icc/c...y/1027619.html

Quote:
The crux of the proposal, made at the ICC chief executives committee meeting in April, is this: once the current cycle of television rights ends for respective Full Members, each board will continue to sell rights for its home territory and avail of those profits entirely as is already the case. But each board will place the rights to telecast its home series in overseas markets in a common pool into which other boards will also put those rights. The rights in the common pool will then be sold collectively as bundles by a committee of Full Members and the profits will be divided and distributed in certain percentages to the contributing boards.
Also intention to host a 2018 ICC T20 WC -
Quote:
Richardson also confirmed an intention to stage an extra World T20 tournament in 2018. The event would, he said, involve "a minimum of 16 teams" and be staged in either South Africa, Sri Lanka or the UAE. The final decision over the event's go-ahead will be made by the ICC's broadcasting partner, Star.

I like the 3 ODI series idea home and away. Include a 2 test and we have a nice tour.

Overall the ODI league idea makes good sense.

Nice thinking from richardson. Included this idea of 13 team ODI league just to make sure they don't face any protest (what they would have faced, had they presented test tier proposal only).

Both Netherlands and Scotland should be considered well ahead of Nepal, for the 13th slot.

Voting matters and keeping India happy is a ninja move.

Asian block goes to 6.
White block goes to 4. Aus, NZ, Eng, and Ireland.

With Scot/Dutch inclusion and Nepal's exclusion it would be 5-5. Richardson is as smart as he is evil. An Indian veto and everything crumbles.

With two tier Australia, NZ, SA, England will not be touring BD. Enjoy your Zim, SL, Pak tours. The frequency will increase.

I reckon cricket fans from around the globe would prefer the ICC proposed 2 division Test League more as it would offer more competitive matches resulting more interest for viewer as well as clear context. Personally I would prefer to get rid of Champions Trophy and have an ODI league instead, as proposed by ICC. I would like to see the following three things get passed in this month's ICC meeting.....

1) World Test League with 2 division structure which would have promotion/relegation system
2) World ODI league with promotion/relegation
3) 4 day Test match with 105 overs each day,

A World Test Championship Cup involving top 3 ranked teams can be arranged at the end of World Test League season if it's possible to find a window in FTP, but that should not be a priority or a reason to compromise the proposed Test League structure as obviously only 3 or 4 teams will be able to compete in Test Championship Cup, not all 10 Test playing nations.

I think the compromise on the one day changes more than make up for the test changes.
Bangladesh is primarily a one day set up,despite scaring S Africa who are now 6th,rightly so I say,Bangladesh hopes reign on how they will perform in tests at home,and they have not conquered that.
A 2nd division test comp will bring them confidence in tests,and maybe they will quailfy for the first division some day.Which is possible with the decline in S African,Sri Lankan and West Indian cricket.
Altho that said S African problems is quotas,and that has hastened their decline before time.

Quote:
two teams will go through from [each] first group to create a Super 12 ... now there is opportunity for two guaranteed spots for the Associates in the main draw, with a possibility of that number increasing to four.
Expansion in the main draw means more opportunity for Associate teams.

Quote:
In better news for the Associates, there is a motion to give their three representatives on the ICC full voting privileges and therefore a voice when it comes to decision making.
Existing votes for the members will get diminished value, i.e. reduced value of vote from BCB. This will reduce the bargain power of existing members, except probably for BCCI. This is empowerment for Associate teams, but BCCI can literally "buy" these votes with a promise to tour an Associate team. On paper it looks good, in reality this is open to manipulation. Currently three Associate representative members are Ireland, Namibia and Singapore.

4 Asian boards are opposing two tier Test system. I'm not sure of what's the status of other proposals. But positive is that cricket will be included in 2024 Olympics if Rome gets it.
http://www.punemirror.in/sports/cric...w/53013432.cms

It's not clear though why each one of them is opposing. I'd wait for CI report.

The pro BIG-BAT ban is gaining traction. After Ponting made clear his eagerness for the ban, fellow country man and current Australian fast bowler, Josh Hazlewood is also in agreement in going for the ban.

Latest reports -

http://www.espncricinfo.com/banglade...y/1032037.html

Quote:
BCB president Nazmul Hassan has said that Bangladesh was the only country to oppose the proposed two-tier Test structure when it was discussed in the chief executive's committee (CEC) meeting last week during the ICC's annual conference in Edinburgh. ... But at the end of the day, it doesn't matter who has opposed it and who hasn't. The decision will be taken through a vote, so if one or two do not vote, it doesn't really matter. But I don't think it will be easy get this passed at the ICC. The issue isn't so [simple]. It is a tough process.
Well the attempts could be futile now since three Associates would get voting rights. So out of 13 votes, I see two or three opposition - nothing would move.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/srilanka...y/1032811.html

Quote:
"Sri Lanka Cricket has decided not to support two-tier Test cricket as we have decided it's detrimental to SLC and for its future," ... "We feel that to make it a top seven - you are virtually relegating the bottom three to a different level." ... "We believe that if you are a Full Member, there can't be two tiers. One of the reasons is to maintain sustainability of the economy of cricket. If India goes to eighth position, what happens?" ... "If someone wants to come up - they can come up, that's no problem. That's the way Bangladesh, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka came up. But that doesn't mean that anyone should go down. If you want to take the Test level that is a different effort that you must make. We did that for Bangladesh and it's a very successful story."
SLC made very valid points here. Why not use the traditional window of Test Status for the new teams? The trouble is actually no want wants to add "loss-making" tours in their calendar.

On a different note, a limited-over 400 over Test format is in a new proposal and is gaining support from boards.

Finally someone else is saying what needs to be said. I wonder why WI board is not saying anything?
