Bermuda’s executive director, Neil Speight, has been elected to the ICC's executive board for a two-year term. The board is responsible for managing the affairs of the ICC, with the prime aim of advancing the objectives of the ICC.

The board is made up of a representative of each Full Member country and three representatives elected by the Associate Members - Samir Inamder (Kenya), Imran Khwaja (Singapore), and Neil Speight (Bermuda).

Speight said: "It is a great responsibility and humbling honour to be elected to the Executive Board. It is not often that in one day a person gets 38 new bosses, but today I join Samir and Imran irepresenting the 33 Associate and 58 Affiliate countries on the Executive Board.

“I believe that this elevation is in part a reflection of the esteem that Bermuda is now held in world cricket. We participated at the World Cup, the Under-19s got to the World Cup, the ladies qualified for the World Cup qualifier and the BCB were just awarded the Global Best Overall Development Program.

“I feel the honour for this appointment should be placed at the grounds of the men that have brought Bermuda cricket to where it is today - Alma Champ Hunt, Edward P Bailey, Hon. Elvin G James and Reginald Pearman. These men are the true leaders and visionaries in our sport and I am privileged to have had the opportunity to work with the three of them."
