Default ICC’s Dubai future in doubt as Bangladesh & Sri Lanka offer to relocate

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have both made enquiries to the International Cricket Council (ICC) to have cricket’s governing body located in their respective countries, Sport360° understands.
The ICC moved from its original location of Lords Cricket Ground – the governing body’s home since its formation in 1903 – to Dubai in August 2005.
The move was prompted by the British government’s refusal to give the ICC special exemption from paying UK tax on its commercial income.

And while the ICC has only been in its new surroundings for the past seven-and-a-half years, the BCB and SLC are keen to see them relocate to a country that takes cricket “seriously.”
According to sources within the ICC, Sport360° has learned the offers were made by BCB chief Nazmul Hassan and SLC president Upali Dharmadasa during a recent ICC Board meeting.
We also understand that the BCB’s bid has the backing of former BCB boss Mustafa Kamal, who in October last year was named the ICC vice-president and future successor to President Alan Isaac.

The title of the news item was a bit misleading - as if the move was imminent.

As soon as I read this article, corruption was the first thing that crossed my mind.
