BCCI will get the support of its Pakistani counterpart if the Indian Cricket Board decides to bring in a no-confidence motion against the top brass of the International Cricket Council (ICC), according to media reports in Karachi.
Earlier, Sri Lanka Cricket Chief Executive Duleep Mendis had said that a no-confidence motion remained an option, especially after the World Cup final fiasco.
"That is something we will have to discuss and then perhaps take it up at the chief executive's meeting," Mendis said.
It spells serious trouble for the governing body, and its chief executive Malcolm Speed at, next month's ICC Executive Board meeting, which now threatens to turn into an ICC vs Asian bloc battle.
Reacting to BCCI Secretary Niranjan Shah's recent interview to an Australian daily in which he did not rule out bringing in a no-confidence motion against the "more and more bureaucratic" ICC top brass, "well-placed sources" told The News that the PCB would throw its weight behind BCCI in the meeting.
