A recent developments as announced by ICC on Saturday calimed that Pakistan and West Indies will have representation on the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) executive committee alongside the India, Australia and England.

The President of the West Indies Cricket Board, David Cameron and Pakistan Cricket Board’s chairman, Najam Sethi were elected to the body’s 5-member executive committee at the ICC’s annual conference week which started in Melbourne Cricket Ground from 24th June.

To be noted, the committee will be chaired by Wally Edwards of Cricket Australia, and includes N Srinivasan, the new ICC chairman, and Giles Clarke, the England and Wales Cricket Board chairman.

The chiefs from both WICB and PCB are part of the 2-members of the committee who will be elected from ICC annually. Also, the big 3 i.e. Australia, India and England will have permanent representatives.

David Richardson is an ex-officio of the committee. In the meeting, ICC ratified the composition of all other committees and it is a matter of fact that Cricket South Africa is the only full member who did not gain a representative on any of them.

Clarke will now be the Chairman of ICC’s Finance and Commercial Affairs Committee. Also, Martin Snedden, the director of New Zealand Cricket will be the chairman of the Governance Review Committee.

Among other decisions made at the conference, there will be a team which will be chaired by David Richardson to review anti-corruption processes. An update was provided to the conference by Ronnie Flanagan who is the chairman of Anti-corruption and Security Unit.

Richardson said, “Probably if you look at the state of things today you can count on one hand the number of ongoing investigations and even with that small number it’s doubtful whether more one or two will result in charges being laid.

He also added, “Yes, of course it’s a threat, we have these unscrupulous individuals travelling around the world pitching up wherever cricket is played and we have to make sure we disrupt all their efforts to engage with players, umpires, groundsmen or whatever. The overwhelming majority of cricket played is clean and the cricketers who are playing it are clean.”
