Richardson to serve ICC until 2019
Former South African wicketkeeper, Dave Richardson will serve as the ICC Chief Executive until 2019 after his contract was extended at the ICC's annual conference held in Edinburgh.
The ICC board is made up of elected representatives from the ten full member nations, as well as three representatives from the associate members.
The ICC chief executive chairs all board meetings, and representatives are joined by the ICC chairman, the chairman of the ICC cricket committee and the chair of the ICC women’s committee.
ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar said of the conference: “It has been a memorable gathering with many highlights throughout the week as well as being a highly productive period for all of the administrators in many ways.
"With the overarching aim to make cricket the world’s favourite sport, we have addressed and tackled a number of important matters, strengthened old relationships and made new friendships.
“Some of the most significant projects remain work in progress but they are complex and require considerable attention and thought. Even in these areas, we have made big strides and I remain confident and optimistic that we will conclude that work as quickly as possible."
Manohar went on to thank Scotland, an associate member, for hosting the conference, saying: “On behalf of the entire cricket family, I want to thank Cricket Scotland for hosting this year’s annual conference in Edinburgh and for being an outstanding host. I wish Cricket Scotland all the very best both on and off the field,”
