The new ICC board under the Chairman ship of N Srinivasan has India, England and Australia as permanent members. West Indies board President James Cameron and Pakistan board Chairman Najam Sethi have been offered seats. South Africa will be excluded from the body. ICC CEO Dave Richardson, who has just been granted a two year extension will sit on the board as an Ex-Officio member.
India will be represented by Chairman N Srinivasan, England by Giles Clarke, Australia by Wally Edwards. Several other administrative bodies too have been decided by the new ICC board at the ongoing annual conference in Melbourne. The new body’s charter will be to “grow cricket beyond its traditional boundaries”. The Board has announced Netherlands and Nepal’s sanction of T20 International status. These teams join other T20 international associate members Afghanistan, Hong Kong, Ireland, Scotland, Papua New Guinea and United Arab Emirates.
The Board has also announced a team chaired by David Richardson for reviewing all anti-corruption processes. “The overwhelming majority of cricket played is clean and the cricketers who are playing it are clean,” declared the board.
