N. Srinivasan to become first chairman as ICC Board approves changes to governance, competition and financial models
The International Cricket Council Board on Saturday approved a comprehensive resolution relating to the governance, competition and financial models of the ICC at a meeting in Singapore. BCCI president N. Srinivasan will become ICC's first chairman from July 2014.
From July this year, Board of Control for Cricket in India president N. Srinivasan will become the first chairman of the International Cricket Council as the game's governing body will see a new set of rules related to governance, competition and financial models. However, the ICC Board will continue to be the primary decision-making body.
A new Executive Committee will be formed to report into the Board. The initial Chair of this Executive Committee (ExCo) will be Wally Edwards from Cricket Australia while the Chair of the Finance and Commercial Affairs Committee (F&CA) will continue to be Giles Clarke from the ECB. These roles will be for an initial two year transitional period to 2016 only.
Once this transitional period is completed, the Chair of the ICC Board will be elected from within the ICC Board with all Full Member Directors entitled to stand for election.
BCCI, CA and ECB - will be represented on both sub-committees, along with two representatives of the other Full Members (who will be elected by the Board).
Several of these decisions still now need to be considered and adopted by the ICC's Full Council. The relevant resolutions will now be drafted through the appropriate committees, including the Governance Committee and the Board before being submitted for approval to Full Council.
