ICC CONFIRM ISAAC NOMINATION

The International Cricket Council this morning confirmed they have received New Zealand and Australia's nomination of Alan Isaac as vice-president from 2010-2012.

Cricket Australia and New Zealand Cricket chose Isaac after their previous nominee John Howard failed to receive support at ICC board level for a position which means the incumbent will subsequently become president of the international governing body.

NZC chairman Isaac is a successful businessman, and former captain of Wellington's 2nd XI.

His nomination will go to the ICC's executive board for approval.

ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat said: "It has been a lengthy process, and I am grateful to both Cricket Australia and New Zealand Cricket for their joint nomination of Mr Isaac as the ICC vice-president.

"The process now requires Mr Isaac's nomination to be formally approved by the ICC board and council, which will be done as quickly as possible through a circular resolution so that he immediately assumes responsibility as ICC vice-president for two years before taking over as the ICC president in 2012."
