Chandra Gocool has stepped down after two years as Cricket Canada's chief executive after the board decided not to renew his contract.

The board has been blighted by constant internal bickering in recent times, and it is uncertain when a replacement will be identified.

"My contract with Cricket Canada has ended," Gocool said. "It's now over to the Cricket Canada's leadership to take the steps they feel might be necessary to move the various opportunities forward."

Cricket Canada thanked Gocool for his contributions over the past two years. "It has been a period of immense growth and success for our organisation and we are happy that he was able to help us reach some of these goals. We wish him the very best." It also announced that it expects to appoint a new CEO by mid-December.

Both Cricket Canada and the USA Cricket Association, two of the biggest Associates, are now without chief executives. Don Lockerbie, the USACA's high-profile CEO, was removed at the start of the year and no steps appear to have been taken to try to replace him.
