ECB Chief David Collier set to retire after 10 years [Asian News International]
(Asian News International Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) London, July 13 (ANI): The chief executive of the England and Wales Cricket Board, David Collier is set to leave his position after spending 10 years in the job.
However, Collier will remain in his place until the end of the season when a successor can be appointed. His departure would be the third major change to the hierarchy of English cricket in the past year following Paul Downton's appointment as managing director and Peter Moores replacing Andy Flower as national coach, the BBC reported.
During his tenure, England cricket team has won the Ashes four times, won the ICC World T20 and reached the number one ranking in Test cricket, but on the other hand he also oversaw the multi-million pound match with Allen Stanford, who was later jailed for fraud.
Collier was in charge when England won the Ashes for the first time on 2005 since 1986, which brought him into the lime light.
Meanwhile, he was also a key figure in negotiating a deal with Stanford for England to play West Indies in a winner-takes-all Twenty20 match in Antigua in 2008. (ANI)
