Chennai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Monday rejected the key recommendations of the Woolf Report concerning the restructuring of the International Cricket Council (ICC), board president N Srinivasan has said.

"The working committee was in particular not agreeable to the changes in the structure of the ICC that had been proposed," Srinivasan said after the working committee meeting on Monday.

Srinivasan, however, did not why the BCCI was opposed to the Woolf report.

The ICC's independent governance review, headed by Lord Woolf, had recommended sweeping changes in ICC's administration and the functioning of its governing body.

The Woolf Report recommended a restructuring of the ICC's executive board to make it more independent. The report also aims at reducing the domination of bigger countries and also a re-examination of the rights and benefits of the Test-playing Full Member nations. It has also called for measures to increase transparency in dealings by the ICC and its members.
