SLC secretary Nishantha Ranatunga said in a statement: “The executive committee agreed to write to the President of the ICC and inform them the unanimous view of the executive committee of SLC is that the said position paper needs to be deferred and reconsidered on a future date.”

The position paper is due to be put to the ICC Executive Board at its quarterly meeting in Dubai on January
28-29. The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has adopted a position on a draft proposal that would put power in international cricket in the hands of India, England and Australia.

Decision was reached during a two-day emergency meeting by teleconference which ended late Wednesday. However, a WICB spokesperson has said that the WICB position would not be made public until it is articulated before the quarterly meeting of the ICC.

“The Board has taken a position in the best interest of West Indies Cricket and which President Dave Cameron will present to the ICC Board meeting next week in Dubai,” the WICB spokesperson said. “The WICB views it as prudent to present the Board’s position to the ICC meeting before making any further public comment.”
