‘ICC would be silly to reject Woolf report’

February 18, 2012 | Cricket, General

Cricket Australia (CA) chief executive James Sutherland said Friday that the International Cricket Council (ICC) executive board would be silly to reject the recommendations of the Woolf report on cricket’s global governance due to objections from the Indian cricket board.

Sutherland feels there is a lot of really good and sensible stuff in the report about best practice governance that could impact international cricket in a good way.

The Woolf report, commissioned by the ICC, recommended vast changes to the ICC’s executive board structure and also offered a wide range of measures to improve its conduct.

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president N. Srinivasan was the first to reject it and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is also understood to have expressed reservations about Woolf’s findings.

Sutherland said it would be hasty to throw the report in the dustbin just on the basis of objections from two members and encouraged ICC to discuss it when they meet again in April.
