Opposed to the idea of 'Big Three': Manohar
Monday 30 November 2015

BCCI President and ICC chairman Shashank Manohar said that he was not in favor of the world cricketing body being dominated by the 'Big Three' .

In an interview to The Week magazine, Manohar said, "I'm opposed to the idea of 'Big Three. This concept cannot be there in an organisation. No one can be 'Big One,' 'Big Two' or 'Big Three.'"

Manohar also told The Hindu newspaper on Thursday that he was not in favor of the new revenue-sharing formula that gave more money to India, England and Australia, and that he believed the three powers were "bullying" the ICC.

Manohar has made many changes to the Indian cricket board in recent weeks in a bid to improve its reputation after the Indian Premier League corruption and spot-fixing scandal of 2013.

Among the steps Manohar has taken to clean up Indian cricket has been the introduction of a conflict of interest clause that bars players and officials from holding multiple posts in the cricket board and the formation of an ombudsman to handle conflict of interest cases when they do arise.
