The worst thing that has ever happened to cricket

Scyld Berry in the Telegraph writes that the changes at ICC board level are the worst thing that has ever happened to cricket

Writing in the Telegraph, Scyld Berry does not mince his words when he describes the changes at ICC board level as "the worst thing that has ever happened to our sport".

Everyone knows this power-grab is utterly unethical, but everyone with a vote has been asked: do you want to say no, or do you want a lucrative tour by India, with all the broadcasting rights you can sell? Or if you feel like a nice soft ICC loan, like the $4m just given to the West Indies board, you have only to ask! Instead of behaving like a governing body, the new-look ICC will channel 62 per cent of the main money-pot into the pockets of Australia, England and above all India.
