Giles Clarke could be called to appear before the Culture Media and Sport Select Committee if one conservative MP has his way.

Damian Collins, MP for Folkestone and Hythe, has applied to be chairman of the committee for Clarke to be invited to account for his actions as the ECB's representative at the ICC.

In particular, he wants him to explain the decision to distribute the finances of global tournaments to the advantage of India, England and Australia and the apparent disadvantage of the other 102 member nations - be they full, associate or affiliate - of the ICC.

Clarke, the former chairman and current president of the ECB, has become the focal point for anger after his less than flattering portrayal in the documentary Death of a Gentleman, which alleges that poor governance of the game at a global level has endangered the future of the sport.

The film is also critical of the decision to cut the World Cup to a 10-team tournament and draws attention to the ICC's decision to disregard an independent report in 2012 from Lord Woolf and the financial services company, PricewaterhouseCoopers which referred to the conflict of interest implicit in the composition and membership of the ICC, chaired by N Srinivasan of India

"Cricket has been taken over by England, Australia and India at the expense of the other 102 countries that play the game," said Collins, who has previously been highly critical of the poor governance standards and corruption in FIFA.
