Graveney said English players felt domestic cricket should be more self- regulatory. "We feel we should strive to get cricket more in line with golf, where the players set the rules of conduct and etiquette and administer that code themselves. Standards in golf are high, and we must try to emulate that," he said.
Graveney, at Lord's for a meeting of the Cricketers' Association executive committee, also delivered a document to the TCCB spelling out the tough new stance adopted by England's 360 professional players.
A 1,000-word memorandum, put together by the union, sets out the players' determination to secure improved pay scales, pensions and round-the-year employment.Reuse content
