Speaking about her appointment, Indra Nooyi said, ‘I love the game of cricket. I played it as a teenager and in college, and to this day, I cherish the lessons the game taught me about teamwork, integrity, respect, and healthy competition. I am thrilled to join the ICC as the first person to be appointed to this role. And I look forward to working with my colleagues on the board, ICC’s incredible partners, and cricketers around the world to grow our sport responsibly and give our fans a new reason to follow every ball and shot.”
The independent director will be appointed for a two-year term, and may be reappointed for two further terms with a maximum six-year consecutive period of service.
