The International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed N Srinivasan as its new chairman after the Full Council consisting of 52 member nations approved the amendments to ICC’s Memorandum and Articles of Association at the Annual Conference on Thursday. Srinivasan is set to take charge after the conclusion of the ICC Annual Conference week.

“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. 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. The ICC is a Members’ organisation and the pathway is now there for any Member to play Test cricket or in the major ICC events if it performs well enough over a sustained period of time,” Srinivasan said after accepting the position.

Srinivasan also congratulated the outgoing President Alan Isaac who has been replaced by Mustafa Kamal. “Mr Isaac has been an inspirational President of the ICC. He provided guidance to everyone during his two-year term and all three international formats remain incredibly popular. The game is unquestionably stronger than it was at the start of his term,” he was quoted as saying in official press release by ICC. Kamal will be the 11th President of ICC.

“This is a memorable and historic day for Bangladesh cricket. On this day 14 years ago, Bangladesh became the 10th Test playing country. Today, a Bangladeshi becomes the 11th President** of the International Cricket Council. Thank you for bestowing this honour on Bangladesh and me. Over the next 12 months, I look forward to working with the ICC Board and ICC Management, and will be delighted to contribute in any way I can. In Mr Srinivasan and David Richardson, I have absolute trust and confidence that we have a combination that will not only strengthen our sport, but will also take this great organisation to a new level,” said Kamal.
