"Cricket South Africa has requested the International Cricket Council (ICC) to withdraw the draft proposal emanating from the ICC Finance and Commercial Affairs Commercial Rights working group to allow for a more consultative and Constitutionally-ordained process to take place," the CA said in a statement.
The proposal recommends wide-ranging changes in the ICC's revenue distribution model, administrative structure and the Future Tours Programme.
It questions the relevance of Test rankings and suggests the reinstatement of the Champions Trophy over the World Test Championship. And almost every recommendation of the "position paper" gives a larger share of control over world cricket to the Australian, English and Indian Cricket boards -- both in the boardroom and on the field.
The official response of CSA to the draft proposal follows a weekend joint session of CSA's Board of Directors and the Members' Forum.
"Without addressing the merits of the proposal insofar as it concerns Constitutional amendments and changes to ICC competitions, these proposals should first be referred to the relevant ICC committees or sub-committees for proper consideration and to make recommendations to the ICC Board," wrote CSA President Chris Nenzani, in a letter to ICC President Alan Isaac.
