The ICC's five-day annual conference got off to a tepid start in Hong Kong, with none of the crucial issues - the Decision Review System, constitutional amendments regarding governance, or Associate involvement in the 2015 World cup - being discussed on the opening day. Instead, the first day of meetings contained a presentation on the ICC's rankings system and discussions on playing conditions.

The major issues up for debate on Monday, June 27, are the Future Tours Programme and whether the DRS should be implemented mandatorily in international cricket.

The ICC annual conference begins with a meeting of the chief executives committee on June 26 and 27, followed by the executive board meeting, on June 28 and 29, and the full council meeting on June 30.
