Bangladesh and Zimbabwe opposed the proposal Top News The International Cricket Council (ICC) took its contentious two-tier Test system off the table as the two-day chief executives meeting in Dubai ended on Wednesday That the idea won’t turn into a reality became evident on the first day itself when the BCCI opposed it with Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) in tow “Now West Indies have also joined India (in opposing it) and Pakistan will join us soon” BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke told The Indian Express “The two-tier proposal has been withdrawn keeping in mind the objections raised by four members There was no voting only deliberations and eventually a consensus had been reached” an ICC insider said BCCI president Anurag Thakur welcomed the decision saying: “I am thankful to the members of the ICC who understood our viewpoint and agreed to take this proposal off the table As one of the key stakeholders in world cricket the BCCI would continue to have an inclusive approach and ensure that everyone’s interest and the growth of cricket aren’t compromised We want to grow the game and take it to new pastures and will not allow any step which can shrink the popularity and development of the game” he added As per the proposal top seven teams would have played in Division I and three lower-ranked Full Member nations along with Ireland and Afghanistan in the second-tier Promotion and relegation were part of the package as also the opportunity for other Associates to get into the lower rung of Test-playing nations based on performance ICC chief executive David Richardson was strongly in favour of the proposed change to reinvigorate the longest format and make bilateral series more exciting and meaningful Players’ global body FICA too had supported the idea But the most vital aspect had been missing; the BCCI’s backing Also the plan to bring the World Test Championship back to the table didn’t cut much ice due to time constraints of the Full Members during the current FTP cycle The withdrawal of the divisional Test structure makes the proposed centralised marketing of the global rights of bilateral series redundant as well The issues are interlinked because the radical overhaul only becomes viable with an increase in the number of Test-playing countries Placing the global broadcast rights of each board in a pool to be marketed by the ICC in a bundle had been considered with an eye to distribute the revenue equally among the contributing boards and reach untapped markets But the BCCI considered it to be a “losing proposition” Richardson’s media statement following the two-day meeting said: “Significant progress on the future shape of all international cricket has been made at the two-day cricket structures workshop in Dubai as Members have explored how to improve the quality of bi-lateral cricket “The focus has been on solutions that will grow fan interest and engagement by delivering high quality cricket with the best players playing in an environment where every match counts Encouragingly there is an appetite from the ten full members for more context around all three formats of the game and we have consensus on a range of areas This includes the details of ODI and T20 structures and principles around Test cricket schedules which include the concept of a Test Champion play off every two years and the opportunity for more nations to be involved” Richardson also said that there were some ‘complexities’ because of scheduling and existing structures “Members will now revert to their boards to share the details of the proposed revised structures and principles Work will continue to develop a clear structure and position for each format over the coming months as the ICC collectively focuses on improving bi-lateral cricket for fans and players in the long run” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsJerusalem: Israeli

unrest could follow File image of Benjamin Netanyahu Reuters Israeli officials signalled they may be open to changing the measures at the Haram al-Sharif mosque compound known to Jews as the Temple Mount after the installation of metal detectors at entrances following an attack that killed two policemen stoked Palestinian anger The metal detectors remained in place on Sundaymorning though cameras had also been mounted near at least one entrance to the compound in Jerusalem’s Old City a possible indication of an alternative to the detectors Netanyahu was also holding a cabinet meeting and was due to meet with his security cabinet later in the day "Since the start of the events I have held a series of assessments with security elements including those in the field" he said at the start of the meeting "We are receiving from them an up-to-date picture of the situation as well as recommendations for action and we will decide accordingly" Israeli major General Yoav Mordechai — head of COGAT the defence ministry agency responsible for civilian affairs in the Palestinian territories — signalled changes to the policy were possible "We are examining other options and alternatives that will ensure security" Mordechai said in an interview with Al-Jazeera Public security minister Gilad Erdan said he would continue to support the metal detectors remaining in place

and Sweden sought a meeting to "urgently discuss how calls for de-escalation in Jerusalem can be supported" Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit on Sunday accused Israel of "playing with fire" with the new security measures Tensions have risen throughout the past week over the metal detectors at the compound which includes the revered Al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock following the 14 July attack that killed two policemen Palestinians reject the metal detectors because they view the move as Israel asserting further control over the site They have refused to enter the compound in protest and have prayed in the streets outside Israeli authorities say the 14 July attackers smuggled guns into the holy site and emerged from it to shoot the policemen Today’s main weekly Muslim prayers — which typically draw thousands to Al-Aqsa — brought the situation to a boil In anticipation of protests Israel barred men under 50 from entering the Old City for prayers Clashes broke out between Israeli security forces and Palestinians around the Old City in other parts of annexed east Jerusalem and in the occupied West Bank leaving three Palestinians dead Margao: Indian U-17 World Cup team
