Melbourne: Greg Barclay was unanimously re-elected as chairman of the ICC for a second two-year term on Saturday. Barclay on his re-appointment said that it is an honour to be re-elected as the Chair of the ICC and I would like to thank my fellow ICC Directors for their support.

Over the last two years we have made significant strides forward with the launch of our global growth strategy that provides clear direction to build a successful and sustainable future for our sport, he said. It is an exciting time to be involved in cricket and I look forward to continuing to work closely with our Members to strengthen the game in our core markets as well as grow it beyond that, ensuring more of the world can enjoy cricket, he added.

Barclay, an Auckland-based commercial lawyer, was originally appointed as the ICC Chair in November 2020. He was previously the Chair of New Zealand Cricket (NZC) and was a director of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in 2015. He being elected unopposed also means that he had the backing of the mighty BCCI in the 17-member board.
