Melbourne: Jun 24, 2014

Cricket Australia (CA) supremo Wally Edwards and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) chairman Giles Clarke tried to pacify the increasingly restless associate and affiliate members of the International Cricket Council (ICC) assuring good governance and greater benefits, on the first day of its Annual Conference in Melbourne on Tuesday.

According to ESPN Cricinfo,”Edwards and Clarke spoke on behalf of the boards of Australia and England at an informal meeting ahead of the official Associates & Affiliates gathering in the Jim Stynes Room.” As per the website report, N Srinivasan, the ICC chairman-elect was not present during the meeting.

It has been learnt that Edwards told members that the path was now open for cricket’s second and third-tier nations to earn their way up the ladder through success on the field and sound governance off it. Tim Anderson, the ICC’s head of global development, said the management of the governing body in Dubai had grown more at ease with plans for the next eight years after working at turning broad resolutions into more detailed blueprints.

“I’ve had conversations with CA, ECB and the BCCI over the past couple of months along with our own development committee, and all of those discussions have been really positive about what the future might look like. I feel pretty good about the future even though there are some changes to come. The fact that our full members seem to be engaging more and more with other countries is a very good thing,” Anderson was quoted as saying by the website.
