New Delhi: The Committee of Administrators (COA) will meet Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) chief Nazmul Hasan Papon tomorrow to discuss the proposed constitutional reforms in the ICC along with the revenue sharing model. It has been learnt that COA wanted all three office- bearers (acting president CK Khanna, joint secretary Amitabh Chaudhary and treasurer Aniruddh Chaudhry) to attend the meeting but none of the office-bearers have so far confirmed their participation. Bangladesh is one of the Test playing member nations which is against the constitutional reforms in the ICC, including a proposal to review full membership status after a certain period of time. They are also opposed to the proposed two-tier Test format and have India as their strong ally. READ: BCB faces accusation of digital manipulation
