Dubai:

The International Cricket Council's annual conference begins in Dubai in the first week of July and a number of key topics would be discussed here.

The sport's governing body is considering hosting high-profile games at Dubai Sports City, which promises to have one of the most advanced stadia in the world, and would offer "next generation" facilities to players, spectators and the media.

The ICC also looks to exploit the geographic location of this facility and attract cricket-viewers from Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

U. Balasubramaniam, CEO of Dubai Sports City said, "Together with the ICC Global Cricket Academy and other cricket facilities, it will add tremendous impetus to the sport."

ICC Board members will be taken on a tour of the new facilities at Dubai Sports City, including the 25,000 seat cricket stadium, the ICC Global Cricket Academy and the future ICC headquarters building on Tuesday.
