As he’s promoted, the empty ICC General Manager chair will be filled by Wasim Khan, who earlier served as CEO of the Pakistan Cricket Board. Wasim Khan has also been the Chief Executive of Leicestershire County Cricket Club and Chance to Shine, a national cricket charity working in state schools and communities across England, Wales, and Scotland.
Wasim Khan will take the chair from Geoff Allardice as General Manager next month. Talking about this, Wasim said;
“We were lucky enough to host a number of ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup matches at Leicestershire in 2017 which was such a significant moment in the history of the game. I look forward to playing my part in really accelerating that growth over the next decade.”
Geoff Allardice, the current General Manager of ICC said;
“I am delighted to welcome Wasim to the ICC. He brings an in-depth knowledge of our sport and its stakeholders and his firsthand experience of the international cricket landscape will be of enormous benefit as we implement the ICC global growth strategy and move forward into a new events cycle.”
