ICC Board to consider vice-president’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.
