Is ex-IPL chief Lalit Modi's 'sports establishment plan' a threat to ICC?

New Delhi: In a shocking revelation on Monday former Indian Premier League (IPL) czar Lalit Modi on Monday admitted his involvement in a plot to overthrow the sport`s establishment, aiming to create a new world governing body affiliated with the Olympic movement.

The controversy 'king' revealed about his new plan in an interview to Australian Broadcasting Corporation. "We`re talking about another cricketing system. There is a blueprint out there, it`s got my rubber stamp on it," stated Modi.

"I have been involved in it. I say it for the first time, I`ve been involved in putting that (blue) print together. The plan that I have put together is a very detailed plan, it`s not a plan that`s come off the cuff, it`s been taking years and years and years in the making," Modi added.

In the past, Modi has criticized International Cricket Council`s governance structure and financial model many a times and also voiced concern at the control exercised by India, England and Australia over the way world cricket is run.

However, if his claims are to be believed and everything takes place according to the plan then the 'new' cricket body might give a direct competition to ICC and could divide the cricket audience.
