I agree, except I think the Australian board has been reasonably supportive of ZC. We've had a few A tours and academy tours, plus the 2014 series. And occasionally some players/coaches get sent to Australia for coaching.
The ECB have been useless, no argument there. ECB the most useless of the lot because they seem to actively root against us.
NZC has been a pretty good friend to ZC, for reasons that aren't very clear to me. It never seems to be too long between NZ tours and I'm never quite sure what they get out of it.
BCCI's interests are purely self serving, they only help ZC when it suits them.
CSA don't do enough. They were somewhat helpful in the bad old days (2008-ish) but given their proximity they could be doing more currently.
BCB a pretty good ally just because of the similar standing (minnows who don't get much help from anyone else). But I think BCB have outgrown us lately.
PCB/SLC/WICB all equally a non-event.
