I think there is lack of asian representation in International Cricket Council (ICC). If you see representation of ICC body only handful of asians are there, so asian teams and players do get affected as they don't have voice in ICC. Moreover since Indian subcontinent is major source of funds for ICC we shuld have more voice in ICC body. One can sense there are double standards when it comes to rules applied to aisan teams. If antics of some of aussie players or the way Nel has targeted indian and now pakistani players in south africa were done by asian teams they would surely be banned and heaviely fined. So south asian teams and cricketing bodies should unite and fight this dicrimination. The only we will get fair treatment from other teams, players and other cricketing officials like unpires , match refrees.
