The home of international cricket: International Cricket Council (ICC)

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is popularly known as the home of international cricket in the world.  This is the governing body for the sport played across the world.  This is the body that decides about every match that a country plays against another throughout the year. 

Every country that plays the game has a governing body within the country.  However they are required by the International Cricket Council (ICC) to become a member of the international body before they are allowed to participate in international matches against member countries.  No individual country may form their own rules and regulation for the game and the way play is conducted within the country.  This is always dictated by the rules and regulations formed by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

With more and more countries following the game and participating in international tournaments it has become more important for the International Cricket Council (ICC) to play a role that is committed to improving the quality of the game played and also looking into the minute matters of the game.  One of the initiatives that have recently been taken is the introduction of neutral umpires to handle matches and the use of technology to improve the performance of the umpires.

While there have been accusations of bias against teams representing the third world countries there has been no alternative offered as a replacement to the International Cricket Council (ICC), which has been carrying out a thankless job at all times.  Indeed, while all of us wonder what the body is up to one can rest assured that it is up to the betterment of the game and is looking to spread the game far enough to reach all parts of the world.
