South African Cricketers' Association chief executive, Tony Irish, has said the Proteas may play very little Test cricket in future against any of India, Australia or England if the ICC revamp takes place according to the wishes of the three powerful cricket nations.


Irish told Sport24 he was responding to controversial proposals, to be put to the International Cricket Council executive board next week, to centralise power among overwhelming market-leaders India and the next two most powerful countries.

He said South Africa could be left playing very little Test cricket against England, Australia and India, affecting the overall credibility of Test cricket.

Warning that the rich nations would only get richer and the others even poorer, he said the big three were definitely shooting themselves in the foot by seeking the new dispensation.

He said the game was already under pressure in South Africa financially.
