Srinivasan is ICC Chairman
Thursday 26 June 2014
BCCI President-in-exile N Srinivasan was formally appointed the first Chairman of the ICC after its 52-member council approved a controversial revamp of the body's administrative structure.The full council approved the amendments to the ICC's Memorandum and Articles of Association at the Annual Conference, here. Srinivasan was elected the Chairman despite being barred by the Supreme Court of India from carrying out his duties as BCCI President due to ongoing investigations into the IPL match-fixing allegations.However, after the Apex court refused to stop his nomination to the ICC position, decks were cleared for his anointment to the newly-created post. The revamp will also hand major executive decision-making authority to the 'Big Three' of the game -- India, Australia and England."It is an honour to be confirmed as the Chairman of the International Cricket Council. I will leave no stone unturned in trying to strengthen the pillars and foundations of our sport, both on and off the field," Srinivasan said in a statement issued by the ICC."I want to ensure that cricket retains and grows its popularity, and that the ICC plays a leading role in this global growth. I want to see more strong teams in international cricket. For this to be achieved, we all need to work hard to develop local talent in our countries. Naturally, there will be more support to those who first show they can help themselves," he added.The approval of the constitutional changes, which flowed from an ICC Board resolution taken in Singapore on February 8 and finalised on April 10, also means that a new Executive Committee was formed, which will report to the ICC Board.PTI
