Speaking to Press Trust India (PTI), Ali Bacher criticized the sidelining of other cricketing boards, particularly mentioning South Africa and Pakistan. He expressed discomfort with the overpowering dominance of a few boards, stressing the necessity of expanding the game worldwide.

During his tenure as the chairman of the ICC’s development committee, Ali Bacher aimed to spread cricket globally. He highlighted the current imbalance, noting the marginalization of South Africa, Pakistan, and the West Indies, emphasizing the detrimental effects of this trend.

Bacher stressed the significance of nurturing smaller cricketing nations and reiterated his profound dedication to advancing the sport beyond the influential trio of boards.

He also questioned the International Cricket Council’s strategy to promote cricket in the United States, citing the immense financial investment required. Bacher suggested focusing on cricket’s growth in Asia, highlighting the vast potential in that region compared to the significantly high costs associated with expanding the sport in the USA.
