Of course cricket counseling comes no easy. There were several, four main, candidates who were reviewed and analyzed before the choice could have been made. The cricket council’s annual conference is about to take place and it will be then that the announcement will be formally made.

South African Lorgat’s views have not yet been received but it is sure that he will be satisfied to whom he passes on the responsibilities. Richardson has been the general manager for ten years at the ICC. Before that, he was part of the South African wicket keeper playing 122 one-day matches and 42 Test matches.

“I am delighted with this opportunity and thank the ICC Board for their approval. It has been a privilege to serve as ICC general manager – cricket, and that work will continue until such time as the ICC Annual Conference ratifies my nomination. I am looking forward to working closely with all the membership and stakeholders in the game.”

He also added that it came as a great honor to him to have been chosen in this position and he will do his best to keep the process flowing without any glitches.

The administration of the ICC has come with a few amendments this time round. The position of the President has become as a purely ceremonial one leading to a major opening for the chairman. His duties and responsibilities have exceeded over what the President used to manage. Along with this, the position of the vice chairman no longer exists. It will be the chairman that will lead the committee in the future.

It is Alan Issac who is the vice president and the task of choosing a new chairman was on his shoulders. On talking about Richardson, he said that he made an excellent successor to Lorgat who understood the various roles and duties associated with this post.

“He is appointment will provide continuity and a smooth transition after Haroon Lorgat steps down after the ICC Annual Conference in Kuala Lumpur at the end of June. I would like to put on record my appreciation for Haroon and what he and the ICC staff have achieved in the last four years”.

Time to report to a new head chief. The ball’s on David’s side now!
