ICC Board & Committee Meeting Outcome

IslandStats.com
Islandstats.com takes a look at just some of the information coming from the recently concluded ICC Board and Committee meetings which was attended by Bermuda Cricket Board CEO Neil Speight who is a Board Member.

The ICC Board approved cut-off dates for qualification to the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 and the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

The top eight sides on the Reliance ICC ODI Team Rankings on September 30th 2015 will qualify for the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, which will be hosted by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

The cut-off date for the 10-team ICC Cricket World Cup in 2019 – also to be played in England and Wales - was set for September 30th, 2017. The top eight ranked sides on that date will automatically qualify for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, while the ninth and 10th ranked teams will play in the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier to be held in Bangladesh in 2018.

Integrity issues

The ICC Board approved the revised ICC Anti-Doping Code, ICC Anti-Corruption Code and Code of Ethics. While the Anti-Doping Code, which is in line with the 2015 World Anti-Doping Code, will come into effect from 1 January 2015, the revised Anti-Corruption Code and the Code of Ethics come into effect immediately.

Some of the key changes to the Anti-Corruption Code include:

• The introduction of provisions to address the issue of who has jurisdiction in cases that involve a number of different jurisdictions so as to avoid potential jurisdictional loopholes

• Enabling provisional suspensions to be imposed not only when a Participant is charged with an offence under the Code, but also where the ICC considers that there are other exceptional circumstances relevant to a Participant (for example where he/she has been charged by a police authority in respect of facts or circumstances that may also constitute an offence under the Code) which the ICC considers mean that the integrity of the sport would otherwise be undermined

• The introduction of the ability for a Participant who is charged with an offence under the Code, but who has not been provisionally suspended, to agree to voluntarily suspend him/herself. Any such voluntary suspension, if it meets the conditions set out in the Code, will be credited against any subsequent period of suspension imposed by an Anti-Corruption Tribunal if the Participant is found guilty

• The introduction of the ability for a Participant who is charged with an offence to admit the offence charged at an early stage and agree an appropriate sanction with the ICC in order to avoid the need for a hearing before the Anti-Corruption Tribunal

• An increase in the ability of Anti-Corruption Tribunals to impose fines in addition to periods of suspensions where Participants are found to have breached the Code

• The introduction of the ability for the Chairman of the ACSU (with the consent of the relevant National Cricket Federation and approval of the ICC Board) to allow a Participant who has been declared ineligible for a particular period to participate or otherwise be involved in Domestic Matches prior to the end of his/her period of ineligibility where such early reinstatement is warranted by the Participant’s conduct during the period of ineligibility.

Suspected illegal bowling actions, player behavior and over-rates

The ICC Board endorsed and reiterated its support for the ICC’s no-tolerance approach in dealing with suspected illegal bowling actions. It also complimented the Members for supporting the process, and proactively identifying and addressing bowlers with suspected illegal bowling actions at domestic level.

The Board noted and supported the more proactive approach of the match officials in international cricket in enforcing better standards of player behavior and improved over-rates.

Speight in ICC Prevent Tour Cancellations Meeting

IslandStats.com
The ICC and all of its Member Boards that includes Bermuda Cricket Board CEO Neil Speight noted with deep disappointment the recent decision of the West Indies players to abandon an international tour without fulfilling the contractually agreed playing obligations between the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

Putting aside the legitimacy or otherwise of any grievances of parties involved (and which are now the subject of a domestic Task Force probe), the ICC and all Member Boards noted that players abandoning tours have the potential to cause irrevocable damage to the sport in the jurisdiction of the relevant Member Board concerned, as well as enormous financial damage, which might adversely affect the financial viability of the sport itself.

With that in mind, and in a show of solidarity, all Member Boards collectively expressed the view that they consider such player action to be extremely disruptive, damaging and unacceptable.

Players who behave in a similar manner in the future will not only risk breaching the disciplinary rules of the relevant Member Board and being sanctioned accordingly, but may also put in jeopardy their ability to conclude future contractual arrangements with domestic franchises or clubs in other jurisdictions.

ICC Chairman, Narayanaswami Srinivasan, said: “It was undoubtedly a sad chapter in our sport. It damaged cricket’s integrity and reputation, as well as affecting confidence within the cricket community, especially that of the fans. The ICC Board was determined to address this situation and ensure such incidents never happen again.

“The ICC is working with the concerned Members towards finding a positive resolution and is confident that there will be constructive outcomes for our game.”

The ICC Board consists of the nominated representatives of each of the 10 Full Members plus three elected Associate Member representatives. The meeting is chaired by Narayanaswami Srinivasan. Also present are the ICC President and the ICC Chief Executive.

Things Need to Get Better Part II
Compare Bermuda's preparation and confidence with the two teams that progressed to the next level:

Nepal

Structure:


Nepal's current structure incorporates club, district and regional progression. 12 teams participate at the national level.

Preparation for World Cricket League Division 3:

Early in September, Nepal held a four-match closed camp for the 24 probable’s. Later that month, Nepal played in the Asian Games against teams including Malaysia, Afghanistan and Kuwait. Following that, in October, the team played practice games against Sri Lanka clubs before they arrived in Malaysia.

Ahead of the tournament:

Paras Khadka: “It has been an amazing year and we want to finish on a high note by winning the ICC WCL Div. Three title. We played our first global event and got T20I status, and this has given the team a tremendous confidence and belief that we can do well.”

Uganda

Structure:


Uganda’s top players play in Division 1 of the eight-team Uganda National Men’s League.

Preparation for World Cricket League Division 3:

In September, Uganda participated in the Africa Cricket Association (ACA) Cup and featured South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Uganda. Following that, the team was at a 14 day training camp at the Easterns in South Africa. In October, the National Team held trial games on a turf wicket.

Ahead of the tournament:

Frank Nsubuga, "We have just had a very good build-up tour in South Africa, participating in the ACA Cup. We had tough games that are very good preparation leading into the tournament."

Let's face it. Uganda and Nepal did not just get lucky. Their boards overcame logistical, financial and administrative challenges, while also ensuring stability for their High Performance and Elite Development programs.

There are no signs that Bermuda even remembers the top two lofty High Performance goals that it set for itself at the beginning 2014 - "Establish Elite player development and management structure" and "Focus moves to Elite development and extension - Men & Women’s Squads."

The simple truth is Bermuda has let the players down one more time. And yet, don't expect any changes. The leadership remains comfortably perched, thanks to the unquestioned loyalty of the small number of member leagues and supporters.
