Dubai:Protecting Test cricket and working on the Future Tours Programme post-2012 will top the agenda when the ICC Chief Executives' Committee (CEC) meets in Cape Town next week.
One of its four meetings per year, the two-day CEC gathering will discuss four major issues at hand - FTP post-2012, protecting Test cricket, amendment to Code of Conduct and the proposal to expanding the role of the Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU).
With the current FTP set to conclude in May 2012, the concept of an alternative structure to bilateral tours --including an enhanced Test championship -- would be discussed in Cape Town.
"There will also be a general discussion on the promotion and protection of Test cricket," an ICC statement said.
Besides, CEC will be updated on proposed amendments to the Code of Conduct, specifically to do with Levels 3 and 4 charges being referred to an independent legally qualified adjudicator.
"There will be a discussion relating to expanding the role of the ACSU in liaising and managing safety, security and terrorism intelligence matters with independent security consultants/agencies and to advise the ICC Chief Executive and Board on all matters relating to safety and security at ICC events and possibly bilateral commitments," the statement read.
On day two of the meeting there will be a strategy workshop and the issues that will be discussed during this workshop will include the long-term landscape of cricket, business models for growing the game and learning lessons from the past.
