Terming the changes in the International Cricket Council's (ICC) new constitution as "vague and unclear", the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) CEO Rahul Johri has expressed the Indian board's reservations over various aspects.

Johri, in his mail to the game's global governing body on Sunday, said the new constitution will convert the nature of the ICC and adversely affect the autonomy of its members, according to a report by espncricinfo.

"The proposed ICC constitution seeks to convert the ICC from a members' organisation to a supra-national regulator," Johri wrote in the email to ICC chief operating officer Iain Higgins.

"This is a fundamental change in the nature of the ICC that adversely affects the autonomy of its members.

"Further, several of the proposed changes are vague and unclear in their purport and intended operation. Given that one of the stated objectives behind the proposed changes is to bring in clarity and transparency, it is imperative that there is complete clarity on all the proposed changes so that members can properly understand the same before formulating their position thereon," he added.

Highlighting the Indian board's reservations, Johri also laid out the BCCI's key observations, which include taking away the vote of the ICC chairman at the board of directors' table (previously used as a tie-breaker), making the membership committee independent and external to the ICC, and reducing the Associate presence on the board from three to one, and including a non-voting former player.

But more than the rest, the BCCI had reiterated its Committee of Administrators (COA) representative Vikram Limaye's objections to the proposed new financial model, terming it as "arbitrary" and not "agreeable".

"The ICC is seeking to change the existing financial model without having any scientific formula or technical analysis behind the proposed changes."

"It is a fundamental attribute of any resource allocation system to first collect information and then allocate resources based on the information, priorities and a defined methodology following appropriate principles. The move to propose changes to the existing financial model without carrying out the aforesaid exercise is an arbitrary one," the mail read.
