Michael Holding Quits ICC Committee

I’ve mentioned West Indies fast bowling legend Michael Holding previously in this blog.  We seem to agree on the abysmal decision of the ICC to change the result of the England – Pakistan Oval test in 2006.

Holding is a man of conviction.  BBC Sport reports that Holding has resigned from his position on the ICC Cricket Committee.  I hear that Holding announced his decision live on Sky Sports today.  Holding is quoted as saying:

“When you take certain actions, you must be quite happy to suffer the consequences,” about the actual test match

And on the ICC’s decision:

“I have just written my letter of resignation to the ICC Cricket Committee because I cannot agree with what they’ve done.”

“A lot of things that are happening today that I don’t want to be involved with, so I’ve moved on.”

Another scathing indictment of the ICC.
