David Collier will step down as chief executive of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) after nearly a decade.
Collier, 59, was appointed to the position in October 2004 and is expected to keep hold of his role till the end of the county season. However, according to sources, an interim replacement will be named soon.
Surrey chief executive Richard Gould and the ECB’s finance director Brian Havill are the two top candidates to replace Collier.
This is the third major change English cricket will experience in the last 12 months after Paul Downton was appointed ECB managing director and Peter Moores was named head coach following Andy Flower’s decision to resign.
