ICC Chief Executives? Committee to discuss FTP

Dubai – The ICC Chief Executives’ Committee (CEC) will meet for its next quarterly meeting in Dubai on Tuesday. The main objective is to consider the new Future Tours Programme Agreement (2012-2020) and the accompanying league rules.

The Chief Executives and their respective FTP managers will work towards implementing the new FTP and the Test and ODI leagues. Following the CEC recommendations in September, the new international cricket structure was approved by the ICC Executive Board in October.

Haroon Lorgat, the ICC Chief Executive who chairs the CEC, said: “The restructure of international cricket has been a significant and strategic piece of work which now requires a new FTP Agreement incorporating league rules and regulations to be discussed and approved.”

With less than three months to go to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, the CEC will also receive an update on final plans and preparations before the start of the event. CEC will also further consider the design of ICC strategy for the period 2011-2015.

Lorgat added: “The present ICC directors and chief executives have recognised their essential role in shaping the future strategy of the ICC and the game.”
