Sri Lanka unhapy at ICC proposal

Sri Lanka officials and fans are not happy with the outcome of the ICC meeting where the new proposal was voted in.

by

    Eight ICC members voted in favour of the new proposals handing more power to India, England and Australia - Pakistan and Sri Lanka abstained from voting.

    The new proposal hands more power to India - with BCCI chief N Srinivasan set to be named ICC chairman for at least two years in July - while Australia and England also got key positions.

    India, which generates around 80% of the ICC's revenue, is set to benefit financially as well.

    Minelle Fernandez reports on the reaction in Sri Lanka.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
