The ICC has radically restructured its administration and revenue distribution system following a campaign by Cricket Australia, the BCCI and the ECB to change the fundamental structure of the world cricket and centre its executive clout and financial power in the hands of these three boards. The change was driven by the fact that a new tranche of the ICC's media rights (2015-2023) were to be up for sale. The ICC's Finance & Commercial Affairs (F&CA) produced a "working group position paper" which proposed changes in the ICC's administrative structures, revenue distribution models and the Future Tours Programme (FTP). The proposal created a stir in the cricket fraternity with arguments suggesting that the concentration of power in the hands of the three boards could impact the game significantly. The constitutional amendments required to put the new structure in place were approved of during the ICC's 2014 Annual Conference
