ICC Board to consider VP's nomination

A two-day high powered meeting of cricket's governing body which began here Tuesday will consider the nomination of their next vice-president who will take over in two years time.

The Executive Board of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in their first of four meetings annually, will also be presented with the independent governance review of the ICC by Lord Woolf, the former chief justice of England and Wales. "The ICC Board will consider the nomination received from the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for the next ICC vice-president who will succeed Alan Isaac as the ICC president in 2014," said ICC.

Isaac, from New Zealand, will take over from India's Sharad Pawar in June this year. There has been media speculation that Mustafa Kamal's nomination will be rejected, but the reigning BCB president has shown confidence his nomination will be approved.

The ICC governance review was launched last year. "In April 2011, the ICC had adopted a new strategic plan which identified the need for an independent governance review as one of the key initiatives to build a bigger, better global game," said the ICC.

Lord Woolf was appointed to conduct the review in August 2011. "The governance review is intended to help the ICC's aspiration to be a well governed and leading global sporting organization," said the ICC.

Following an interim report presented by Lord Woolf during October 2011, the ICC Executive Board will now receive a final report with recommendations, the ICC said.

Should Dilshan have continued until Cricket World Cup 2019?

Yes No

“That was pathetic. No excuse at all. The whole team is responsible. Whoever the captain is, we have to back him and try and support him. The captain has to do so many other stuff. All the 11 guys must back him and support him.” “We have addressed the issue of finishing off the overs on time in the past as well, but it cropped up again. It’s so unfortunate to see Upul going out as he is a crucial player in our set up. He batted well against South Africa and it’s so unfortunate. This can’t happen again,” - Angelo Mathews


Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
