Pawar to hand over ICC reins to Isaac at Annual Conference

Sharad Pawar’s tenure as International Cricket Council President will come to an end next week and New Zealand’s Alan Isaac will take over from the Indian at the body’s five-day Annual Conference starting with the Chief Executive Committee’s meeting here tomorrow.
“Mr Isaac will take over as ICC President from Sharad Pawar, who completes his two-year term at the end of the week,” the ICC said in a statement.
The ICC Council, at its meeting on June 28, will be asked to approve amendments to the ICC Articles which will create the post of Chairman from June 2014 with the President’s role being ambassadorial from that date onwards.
“The Council will also be required to confirm the appointment of David Richardson as successor to Haroon Lorgat as the ICC Chief Executive,” the statement said. (PTI)
