Wellington: New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has backed the proposed changes in the ICC's administrative structure, which would leave major decision-making in the hands of India, Australia and England, despite facing severe criticism from the country's players' association.

The New Zealand Players' Association has described the draft proposal of this plan, which will be presented to the ICC Executive Board during its quarterly meeting in Dubai on January 28 and 29, as "scheming" by India, Australia and England.
