How to read the latest news from the world of cricket
Cricket is a global sport, but the world’s cricket nations are divided.
That divides cricket fans in many ways, and in the world where the game is played, cricket is one of the most important.
While some love the game, some love it for its political messages, others have the idea that cricket should be separated from politics, a position the ICC, the governing body of cricket in the UK, is in no mood to budge on.
The ICC has announced that its members will be voting on a proposed resolution on whether to make cricket an international sport, in line with a UN-backed plan for the game.
The proposed resolution would allow members to choose whether to join a group called the Cricket Council, which is the body of ICC members that decides the ICC’s future.
It is a position that has been embraced by the likes of former ICC president Michael Hussey, who in 2016 said: “Cricket is part of our national fabric and should be accepted by our nation, regardless of politics”.
But the proposed resolution is being put forward by a group that is not part of the ICC.
It’s not just cricket fans who are divided on the issue, there is a wider public who feel the game should be split into two sports, with a more inclusive playing surface.
“Cricbuzz will not be supporting this resolution,” a cricket-loving campaigner told The Guardian.
“The cricket world has lost the best cricket fans on the planet.
The sport is going down the tubes, the fans are going down, and the sport is falling behind the times.”
The ICC says it has been in touch with the public to try to find a compromise.
“There is no doubt that the cricket world is divided on this,” said the ICC spokesperson.
“This is a non-binding vote, but there are no plans for an immediate announcement of any sort.” “
The proposed ICC resolution, which will be voted on at the end of February, is an attempt to reach a consensus on whether the sport should be part of an international body or remain an international club. “

The proposed ICC resolution, which will be voted on at the end of February, is an attempt to reach a consensus on whether the sport should be part of an international body or remain an international club.
The idea behind this resolution is that, while the ICC has a responsibility to promote the sport, its membership has a wider scope to play a role in shaping the sport.
It says the sport can be considered a global organisation, but its members should have equal representation in the ICC as in the other international federations.
The current ICC constitution, which was put to a referendum in 2015, does not contain any provision on international membership.
The only way to achieve a clear and binding statement on whether cricket should remain an ICC member, says the ICC statement, would be to make the resolution a part of a new constitution.
That process would have to be endorsed by the ICC board.
There have been concerns expressed in recent weeks that the ICC might be looking to change the rules for the upcoming Twenty20 World Cup in India.
That tournament is being held in the wake of the deadly violence that took place in Mumbai earlier this month, when hundreds of people were killed, including many of the city’s prominent politicians.
The new constitution proposed by the board is expected to include a clause that allows member nations to form a governing body, in addition to the ICC itself.
The UK government has also expressed concerns about the proposed ICC vote, calling it a “significant step backwards for the cricket community” and saying it could “lead to a return to the dark days of the old ICC”.
The ICC, for its part, says it is “very supportive” of the new constitution, and is “committed to creating a safe environment for the future of cricket”.
But there are concerns about what this vote could mean for the sport as a whole.
“It is not a vote that will make the game safer, it is not going to create a more welcoming atmosphere, and it is certainly not going do anything to resolve any of the serious issues that have been raised about the current constitution,” said James Kelly, executive director of Cricket United Kingdom.
“When it comes to the long term future of the game it is going to be a matter of long-term sustainability, not short-term political gains.”
The debate over whether cricket is an international game has been simmering for years.
In 2015, the former England captain Michael Vaughan called for the introduction of a single-game format, which could see the game played on a neutral playing surface instead of the green fields of the UK.
The opposition, the England Cricket Board, and Cricket United States (CUSU) were also vocal in their opposition to the proposal, which has been supported by several other countries.
There is also the matter of the sport’s popularity in the countries where it is played.
The British public is split over whether the game’s status should
