    Published on November 26, 2020

    New Zealand’s Greg Barclay has been elected as the new independent chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC). The head of the New Zealand Cricket team, NZC, Barclay beat Imran Khwaja in the second round of voting. Imran was interim chairman after Shashank Manohar stepped down from the post in July this year.

    In the first round of voting last week, Barclay had 10 votes to Khwaja’s six, and needed 11 votes for a two-thirds majority of the 16-person ICC Board. That vote arrived from Cricket South Africa in a second round of voting. Barclay is the second independent chairman of the world body, after Shashank Manohar of India.

    A commercial lawyer by trade, Barclay has served as a director of NZC since 2012. He was a director of 2015 Men’s World Cup, held in Australia and New Zealand. He is also an experienced company director holding board positions with various New Zealand and Australian companies.
