Melbourne: The end of Australia’s domination makes cricket more interesting, feels ICC CEO Haroon Lorgat who can claim some credit for the world champions’ downfall at the hands of South Africa in the ongoing Test series here.

“It’s always a lot more interesting for the public if there are one, two or three teams in fact competing for the No.1 spot. It just makes it all the more interesting,” Lorgat told the Sydney Morning Herald.

And Lorgat can take some credit for the Proteas’ feat as he was the one who gave breaks to Hashim Amla, Ashwell Prince, Dale Steyn and AB de Villiers during his stint as selector in Cricket South Africa.

Lorgat recalled facing stiff opposition when he pushed the quartet’s case. — PTI
