Former Indian skipper Anil Kumble will be succeeding Clive Lloyd as the chairman of ICC’s technical committee. The leg-spinning legend was incidentally appointed the head of BCCI’s technical committee only a month ago. He is the second Indian to occupy the chair after Sunil Gavaskar.
Announcing the appointment, ICC President Alan Isaac said ,“In Anil Kumble, we have a new chairman who has unquestioned experience not only as a player with India but also as an administrator with Karnataka State Cricket Association as well. I am sure that he will carry on Clive’s good work and bring, like Andrew Strauss, contemporary thinking to the committee and both understand clearly the issues facing the modern game.”
“I would like to thank Clive Lloyd for his chairmanship of the ICC Cricket Committee and to his tireless contribution to the game. The ICC Board were united in their admiration for his work as chairman. We also thank Ian Bishop for his contribution during his term as well,” Isaac added.
Kumble is also the President of the Karnataka State Cricket Association and a team mentor with IPL side Royal Challengers Bangalore. The 41-year old was also the chairman of the National Cricket Academy.
Former English skipper Andrew Strauss too was appointed to the 16-member committee, which meets twice a year to consult on playing matters and offers recommendations to the ICC.
