Hong Kong, June 27: It seems that the major issues rankling on the minds of the participants of the International Cricket Council's (ICC) 5-day annual conference have been pushed to today, Monday, for deliberation.
The Decision Review System (DRS) which has stoked major controversy and sparked off a stand-off of sorts between the Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) and the other boards, found no place on Sunday's agenda. Neither was the provocative issue of the ICC's constitutional amendments, which Pakistan is staunchly against, discussed on the opening day of the conference.
Instead, the first day of the summit centred around less contentious issues as the ICC's ranking system and playing conditions
Among today's itinerary for discussion is the Future Tours Programme(FTP), which will chart out the International cricket schedule for the next eight years, as well as the DRS issue.
The ICC annual conference begins with a meeting of the chief executives committee on June 26 and 27, followed by the executive board meeting, on June 28 and 29, and the full council meeting on June 30.
