Dubai, March 04, 2012: Haroon Logart, The ICC Chief Executives’ Committee (CEC) will gather in Dubai on 5 and 6 March 2012 for a routine meeting. Among the topics for discussion are:
Independent Governance Review
Following publication of the Woolf report on the independent governance review of ICC, the CEC representatives will be given the opportunity to consider the 65 recommendations and its implications.
Haroon Lorgat, the ICC Chief Executive, said: “The CEC is an important grouping and it would be valuable for them to properly consider and express their views on the report and its recommendations.”
The CEC will hold a strategic conversation on whether the current strategies relating to T20 cricket are appropriate to best manage the balance and long term viability of all three formats of the game.
Mr Lorgat said: “Cricket is uniquely fortunate to boast three exciting formats at international level and we have recognised the inevitable need to strategically manage these formats for each to be successful in the long run.
“The discussion is intended to stimulate thinking on the volume and scheduling of T20 cricket, its role in developing the game further and the implications for cricket as a whole.”
Amongst other cricket matters, the CEC will consider the practical application of No Objection Certificates, the suitability of ICC Test and ODI ranking systems for determining qualification to ICC events and for promotion and relegation purposes, disability cricket and cricket in multi-sport games. The CEC will also consider appointments to the ICC Cricket Committee in terms of the committee’s Terms of Reference.
Lorgat said: “Clive Lloyd has completed a successful three year term as chairman of the ICC Cricket Committee and the CEC will consider this position and make a recommendation to the ICC Board.”
There will also be updates on the Future Tours’ Programme (FTP) Agreement, domestic integrity matters (anti-corruption and anti-doping), anti-racism policy and international venue accreditation standards.
The CEC will receive updated presentations on the progress with global development of the game including the new strategy to grow and integrate the women’s game internationally.
“The development programme has a comprehensive strategy which includes improving performance standards and to have 1 million new participants from the Associate and Affiliate Member countries playing the game by 2015,” concluded Lorgat.
The CEC comprises the Chief Executives or nominated representatives of the 10 Full Member nations as well as three Associate Member representatives. The ICC Chief Executive chairs the meeting and, by invitation, the ICC President or the ICC Vice President may attend.
