The International Cricket Council (ICC) have announced that they will not renew their memorandum of understanding with the Africa Cricket Association (ACA).
Since the ACA are currently dealing with financial problems, the ICC will take over their activities. This means that the ICC will now run tournaments involving African nations, just like they do in the Americas, East Asia and Pacific and Europe.
For the last seven years, the ACA and ICC’s agreement stated that the ACA have to contribute 50 per cent of their earnings and 40 per cent of the CEO’s salary towards helping develop the game in the continent.
However, according to a report, the ACA currently contribute only 10 to 20 per cent of their earnings.
It has also been reported that the ICC plan to do the same thing with the Asian Cricket Council (ACC).
