BCCI president and former India captain Sourav Ganguly has been appointed as the chair of the ICC men’s cricket committee, replacing Anil Kumble in the position, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced in a press release on Wednesday.
Kumble stepped down from the role after having served the maximum of three three-year terms.
The ICC also announced that it would continue with the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) in its current form, with the top two teams competing in a final after a league phase across a period of two years.
The international cricket governing body, meanwhile, has formed a working group to review the status of the Afghanistan Cricket Board and cricket in Afghanistan in light of the recent governmental changes in the country.
The four-member group includes Imran Khwaja as chair and Ross McCollum, Lawson Naidoo and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Ramiz Raja.
