What a joke cricket will now become with the takeover of the international game by the "Big three". Here we have the game about to be revamped to the financial benefit of 3 teams at the expense of all other countries who play the game. England who just can't seem to play at all these days, India who are getting smacked by New Zealand, and Australia who is universally hated by all, are now going to "own" the game and play amongst themselves. Teams like South Africa, the current ranked no.1 team in the world now get no say in who and when they will play. Pakistan, West Indies and New Zealand will be fed the crumbs and will only play the so-called "big three" when the countries who make up this elite group, get sick and tired of playing amongst each other. The public will quickly tire of seeing India, who are not a strong team, and England who are generally regarded as crap, being regularly getting spanked by Australia and leave the stands in droves.

Good luck to them, at least the minions will get to play good and exciting cricket that will be enjoyable to watch.

It's possibly better than the rife corruption in the sub - continent that seems to control it now.
