MUMBAI: Just days before the World
Cup 2015 is slated to begin, ICC
senior executives met to take
important calls on the upcoming
tournament. The meeting was chaired
by ICC chairman N Srinivasan in
presence of ICC chief executive Dave
Richardson and other members of the
Board.

Players behaviour and safety, playing
conditions for 2015 edition of World
Cup and schedule of ICC events from
2015 – 2019 were the major points of
discussion in the meeting.

The ICC Board reiterated its support
for the umpires clamping down on
poor player behaviour, particularly
leading into and during the ICC
Cricket World Cup 2015.

The Board considered issues around
player safety following the tragic
death of Australia batsman Phillip
Hughes during a first-class match,
and was briefed on the ICC-
supported research project to
improve the safety of cricket helmets,
which has recently resulted in a new
British Safety Standard being
introduced.

It was noted that helmet
manufacturers have now introduced a
number of new helmet models that
comply with the updated British
Standard, and that an increasing
number of international players have
chosen to wear the helmet models
that complies with this new safety
standard.

Whereas on playing conditions, the
ICC Board roped in the use of a
Super Over in the event of a tie in
the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 final.

This now replicates the arrangements
for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011
final and other recent ICC events
where a winner will be determined
on the day of the final (weather
permitting), and a Super Over was
the most credible way to separate
the two sides.
