Greg Barclay retained his chairmanship of the International Cricket Council (ICC) earlier on Saturday after Zimbabwe’s Tavengwa Mukuhlani pulled out of contention.
The ICC announced the re-election of Mr. Barclay after the former New Zealand cricket chief retained his position as chairman with the full backing of the board.
In his statement after his fresh re-election, Greg Barclay said that over the course of the last two years, the ICC has made significant strides forward with the launch of its global growth strategy that provides clear direction to pave the way for a successful and sustainable future for cricket.
Chairman of ICC Mr. Greg Barclay added that it is an exciting time to be involved in cricket and he is looking forward to continuing his close coordination with members of cricket’s global governing body.
The opposing candidate, Mr. Mukuhlani, who withdrew his contention, said that the continuity of Greg Barclay as chairman of the ICC was in the best interest of cricket.
