One of the last executive board meetings of the Asian Cricket Council ended in Dubai on Tuesday with talks held over the staff's compensation and how it will function after June 30. CEO Syed Ashraful Huq's association with the ACC will also end, having been with the organisation from its first day of operation in 1983.

The financial committee, headed by N Srinivasan, and the executive board held their meetings in Dubai and the final gathering of the ACC members will be at the annual general meeting to be held in Kuala Lumpur in early June.
"In this meeting we discussed the reorganisation and found out more about the winding down process," Huq said. "We will operate out of Kuala Lumpur till June 30. ACC won't be renamed but now there will be another organization called the ACC Events which will work out of Singapore.

"Our AGM will be held in Kuala Lumpur in June. I am heading there and we will decide a date very soon. We will try to set a date that is well before the ICC annual conference which begins on June 22 in Barbados."

Discussions were mainly about how the staff will be remunerated as the office in Kuala Lumpur will be closed off. "We are also giving adequate staff compensation. It is not extraordinary but it is not a bad package," Huq said.

Some of the staff will be heading over to the ICC, including ACC coaches like Aminul Islam, the former Bangladesh captain, and Venkatapathy Raju.

"It will have a very skeletal office in Singapore with only two people working there. Bandula and Ganesh Sundarammoorthy will work out of ICC's Dubai office. Aminul Islam Bulbul, Rumesh Ratnayake, Iqbal Sikander and Venkatapathy Raju will also work for ICC from July 1," Huq said.

Huq himself will take stock of his future as an organiser having spent three decades with the ACC. A former general secretary of the Bangladesh Cricket Board, Huq was present during the formative days of the ACC and has worked in various positions.

"I have been associated with the ACC for 32 years. I was there from the first day, September 19, 1983. I was a joint secretary, administrative officer, secretary and finally the CEO. In the meeting, they were nice enough to tell me that a CEO wouldn't have any role in a two-man office. I am not sure if I will be back in Dhaka for good but I will go there from time to time.

This guy is a power hungry goon, instead of more decentralization, he is concentrating all power & resources in ICC

TBF, i dont see in future anyone making much noise about this besides the afghans.....the other boards have enough series to be bothered about...most likely we are seeing a 4 nation type tournament in Bangladesh that might kick-start VB series style tournaments in our part of the world...

Default 2016 Asia Cup to be played in the T20 format

Two Associate teams set to feature from 2016 as Asia Cup moves to mirror format of following World Cup

The Asia Cup is set to undergo a radical change and will be a Twenty20 competition in 2016 for the first time, outgoing Asian Cricket Council chief executive Syed Ashraful Haq has revealed.

The ACC is to be wound down by June 30 and its operations absorbed by the International Cricket Council, prompting fears the Asia Cup tournament could be disbanded. However, Haq confirmed to cricket.com.au that not only would the tournament continue every two years, it would be revamped to include more Associate nations and mirror the format of the World Cup event to follow.

Haq confirmed reports the ACC's headquarters in Kuala Lumpur would close on June 30 and the development work currently done by the organisation would be taken over by the ICC.

He said the 2016 Asia Cup would be held early next year as a prelude to the ICC World Twenty20, with the latter to be hosted by India from March 11 to April 3. It would then revert to a 50-over tournament in 2018 ahead of the 2019 World Cup in England and be played as a Twenty20 competition again in 2020.

Haq suggested the change in format could also see two Associate nations join India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in the tournament.

Afghanistan, Nepal, Hong Kong and United Arab Emirates have Twenty20 status.

"As there is a World Twenty20 tournament in 2016, the Asia Cup next year will also be of Twenty20 Internationals in February or March," Haq told cricket.com.au.

"The host country has not been decided yet." Bangladesh hosted the previous two Asia Cups in 2014 and 2012.

"There may be one or two teams from Associate nations as well," Haq added. "They could join India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the main tournament after playing a qualifying round.

" The Asia Cup will return to an ODI format in 2018 with the biennial event set to mirror the format of the major ICC event that follows. It's a change that will allow Asia Cup contestants to fine-tune for World Cups with in a major regional competition.

"The year 2020 will again see the tournament in Twenty20 format and there will be another ODI (50-over) Asia Cup in 2022," Haq said.

They should have separate names for the two tournaments. Not a terrible idea, but that means we lose out on a few ODI fixtures.

Well the proposal is basically to have two phases. First phase, associate teams fight out for top two spot. Phase two, two associate teams join four teams to make it a six team affair - probably in two groups. Host might be India this time, since teams will get a taste of Indian pitches.

I absolutely agree with you brother BogaKhaa!

But this move and decision about ACC is unbelievable. Feel extremely bad for Mr. Syed Ashraful Haque. This is very wrong and shameless of an act.

I think the thread title should be changed to reflect the discussion about change in format. The Asia cup is secured at least until 2022.

This is actually a pretty good idea. Considering we don't get a chance to play too many international T20 games, this will give us a chance to assess where we stand. We need to try to schedule more international T20 games. I'm pretty sure going forward ICC, will always have a qualifying round with 9th and 10th team plus associates. Playing more international T20 games, gives us a chance to move up the ranking and get into the main round automatically.

Format part has rather been better and logical.

It's a bi-Annual event, so the format will correspond with the main worldcup format of that year, that will allow the Asian nations to better prepare for the main World Cup. So Asia cup will retain both T20 & ODI format alternately.

But scrapping ACC is the worst thing that happened, because if India isn't in control of ICC, this AsiaCup might be at risk & too much power is being centralized with ICC, which isn't good for the development of the game.
