ICC receives Alan Isaac’s nomination for vice president

August 2nd, 2010 - 6:26 pm ICT by IANS  

Dubai, Aug 2 (IANS) The International Cricket Council (ICC) Monday confirmed that it has received the joint nomination of Alan Isaac from New Zealand Cricket (NZC) and Cricket Australia (CA) for the position of vice president from 2010-2012.

CA and NZC nominated Isaac after their earlier nomination of former Australian prime minister John Howard did not receive support within the ICC board. As such, both members were invited to re-nominate a candidate by Aug 31.

Isaac, an ICC director, succeeded John Anderson as chairman of NZC in 2008. A left-handed batsman from Wellington, who also captained Wellington’s second team for three years, Isaac is an eminent businessman and corporate governance practitioner.

His nomination will now go to the ICC’s executive board for approval.

“It has been a lengthy process and I am grateful to both Cricket Australia and New Zealand Cricket for their joint nomination of Mr. Isaac as the ICC vice president,” ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat said in a statement.

“The process now requires Isaac’s nomination to be formally approved by the ICC board and council which will be done as quickly as possible through a circular resolution so that he immediately assumes responsibility as ICC vice president for two years before taking over as the ICC president (from India’s Sharad Pawar) in 2012,” Lorgat said.
