India coach Gary Kirsten was appointed member of ICC Cricket Committee as a representative of national coaches on the final day of two-day meeting of the International Cricket Council Board.

Kirsten will replace Mickey Aurthur, who recently resigned as South Africa coach.

"The Board has reappointed Ian Bishop and Mark Taylor to the ICC Cricket Committee as media representatives and also ratified the reappointment of Kumar Sangakkara and Tim May as current player representatives and India's Gary Kirsten as the representative of national coaches following the recent resignation of Mickey Arthur," an ICC statement said.

The ICC Board decided to further work on the Decision Review System and build on the encouraging results from the first 13 matches.

"ICC received a report from David Richardson, ICC General Manager Cricket, on umpire decision review system in which he stated the system had led to a significant increase in the number of correct decisions. In 13 Tests the percentage of correct decisions has risen from 91.3 to 97.44 per cent.

"The Board supported to continue to build on the encouraging results from the first 13 matches and will discuss further technological improvements with broadcasters in March to improve and refine DRS further," the statement said.

It also accepted ICC Anti-Corruption and Security Unit's recommendation on the requirement of a designated full-time security manager by all the full members.
