An official of a full member board asked if the servers of all the ICC employees would be checked to make it a thorough investigation. "Will we see the servers of all ICC employees being scrutinised? What exactly will be the procedure? Also, what about the physical movement at a time when the coronavirus pandemic has seen a restriction on movement? Also, a virtual meeting will be enough to assess individuals? What are the terms of reference for the investigation?" he enquired.
IANS did request for the terms of reference of the investigation from the ICC, but there was no reply to the same.
"I am surprised that a "leak" was a substantial enough reason for the ICC's matters to be put off for 10 days. They are crucial matters and it is not as if the ship hit an iceberg, it was a leak. There have been numerous leaks in this administration and there will be many more in the next. Will the organisation come to a standstill with every leak? To me it seems that someone was just buying some time to attempt that the transition happens to go someone's way," he pointed.
The two stories in the media that created the stir was firstly the exchange of tax-related letters between the ICC and the BCCI. And the second was Cricket Australia Chairman informing the ICC that it wasn't in a position to host the 2020 T20 World Cup in October-November with an eye on the current global situation due to the coronavirus pandemic.
