The remit of the MCC World Cricket committee, which will be chaired by Tony Lewis, the MCC Chairman of Cricket, will be to discuss any aspect of the game, especially those which have an impact on the Laws or the Spirit of Cricket, included as the preamble to the Laws. It will be empowered to conduct research, particularly into technological advances and bio-mechanical elements of the game and its players.The constitution of the committee reveals that barring Rahul Dravid, the rest are all retired from international cricket, have had their benefit seasons and in a few cases, written their autobiographies as well. Given that the MCC is still the upholder of the laws of the game, this group has a wonderful opportunity to make some fundamental and far-reaching changes. But my gut feeling is that fourteen members in a committee is far too many to come to any meaningful decision in a timely and fair manner and there is a real danger of this committee being nothing more than an old boys' club.
