Giles Clarke has been nominated to become the England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) first president after the board proposed a change to its constitution.
Clarke was nominated for the role since he has been ECB chairman for seven years now.
However, whether Clarke will be appointed as the ECB’s first president or not will be down to how the 41 members of the board vote this month.
If Clarke does become president, it is likely that Yorkshire chairman Colin Graves will take over as ECB chairman.
“I would want a top-to-bottom review of cricket – from England Test match cricket right down to recreational cricket,” Graves told the Yorkshire Post. “If you ask most people whether cricket is positioned right at the moment, and whether everybody is happy with cricket, I don’t think anybody would put their hand up and say ‘Yes’, so there’s a lot of things we’ve got to sort out.”
