Default ICC Player Rep Election scandal and BCCI

The ICC Cricket committee also includes 2 player representatives. At the elections this year, Tim May had won over the BCCI candidate Shivramakrishnan on the basis of the votes of the captains of the 10 Test playing countries. This was not to BCCI's liking and the pressurized for a revote and apparently also pressurized some other boards to compel their captains to vote for Shivramakrishnan.

From the Indian Express

Tony Irish — chief executive of South Africa players association and also on the board of Federation of International Cricketers' Associations (FICA) said on Thursday that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had forced a re-vote for a crucial post in the ICC's decision-making committee during a recent election.

The Indian board had last month picked former India leg-spinner Laxman Sivaramakrishnan as their candidate for the players' representative on the ICC cricket committee. A report on South African website BDLive said however, that during the election conducted by email where the 10 Test playing nation's captains voted, a majority of the captains had picked the Australian incumbent Tim May over the Indian veteran cricketer.

"The voting for the players' representative on the ICC cricket committee is done by the 10 Test captains," Irish told The Indian Express. "In the first instance, it went in favour of Tim May. But, suddenly we faced a situation where Tim May was said to be 'unacceptable' by some board and a re-voting was ordered. Some captains were pressured to change their decision and we all know that Tim is not liked by the Indian board. I don't want to go into the details. But us and some of the countries' boards wondered what was the reason for the change," Irish added.

The voting was part of a secret ballot, where Test captains personally pick their representative on the two member committee. BCCI were keen on removing May, who doesn't share the most cordial of relations with India, as BCCI does not recognise FICA of which May is a board member. Amongst other things, it is believed that an Indian member on the committee would mean the BCCI could keep the controversial DRS (Decision Review System) at bay.
