Back in 2014, a constitutional amendment was made which gave the executive powers to the Cricket boards of India, Australia and England and named it as “Big Three”and it faced many controversies. Even Manohar has also mentioned it that he does not agree with the consolidation of the power in just 3 member nations even when there are so many.

Also, one of the key point of the agenda is, whether cricket should be included in the Olympics and Commonwealth Games or not. This particular point has been an issue of debate from quite a time now and no strong word has come till not over it.
