International Cricket Council (ICC)
01 Feb. 2017
A new ICC website has been launched today with a host of features for cricket fans and media around the world.
With a live match centre featuring full editorial ball by ball commentary, complete cricket calendar for both men’s and women’s international cricket, video section and Hall of Fame celebration.
New web site carries a calendar, where one can search by date, format and teams is a particular favourite of everyone who has trialled it! This video from Ian Bishop explains more.
Shashank Manohar, ICC Chairman has said on the occasion that ‘as Chairman of the ICC, I feel optimistic for our sport for a number of reasons away from the field of play. Sport governance is under the spotlight more than ever before and it is no secret that in our recent past the ICC has taken decisions that were in retrospect not always in the best interests of the game as a whole. I believe 2017 is the year when we start to reverse that and provide a genuine opportunity for our sport to grow.
My vision is to ensure the sport has strong governance, finance, corporate and cricketing structures that support all of our members and decisions are taken for the long term benefit of the sport from the largest nation to the smallest.’
A ‘What is Cricket’ series is a world first for the sport, explaining the game in ten videos. Additionally there are a range of explainer videos around DRS, DLS, Team Rankings, three formats and a host of other areas that aim to demystify the sport for those who don’t have your knowledge.
