In the wake of the latest mess with the issue of Australia touring Zimbabwe, I’ve written a post calling for Australia to leave ICC.
It is not a step to be taken lightly, and there are many permutations to be reckoned with. But now is as good as any time to reckon with them. It is clear that ICC can not give cricket the clear and decisive leadership that it needs. Cricket is NOT about dollars and deals, but about cover-drives, spectators, and playing the game. ICC fails to recognise this, and therefor it is up to Australia to help put things right.
What about England? Should Australia go it alone or should England and Australia set up on their own again like in 1877 (or to be fair 1912 when the then Imperial Cricket Conference was founded.)
