Becker, who is currently the legal advisor of Cricket South Africa (CSA), has accused the BCCI, especially current President N Srinivasan, of bullying ICC.
     
"(The ICC) has become powerless in the face of India's dominance, and are forced to succumb to the manipulative tactics of the BCCI - Srinivasan in particular – just to keep their jobs," Becker said.
     
Becker said the itinerary for India's disputed tour to South Africa next season -- as released by CSA in July – was approved by the ICC board.
     
"There is a formal, unequivocal and unanimous ICC board resolution approving the current FTP schedule, including three Test matches and seven one-day internationals between India and South Africa," Becker said.
     
"When the ICC allows one of its directors to blatantly disregard an ICC board resolution it becomes more than questionable governance, it becomes improper," Becker said.
     
Becker also accused Srinivasan of pushing the ICC into illegality.
     
"There is one man who makes decisions at board level and they are certainly not in the interests of world cricket," he said.
     
"Directors' duties, conflicts of interest and matters of ethical compliance are routinely ignored. It's not only hugely concerning for the game, it's contrary to the regulatory framework within which the ICC operates, and hence it's illegal," he said.
