Neil Speight retains place on ICC executive board

Neil Speight has been re-elected as ICC Associate Member director

Neil Speight has retained his place on the International Cricket Council executive board.

The former Bermuda Cricket Board chief executive was re-elected as an ICC Associate Member director at a secret ballot held during the ICC’s Annual Conference in Birmingham, England.

Also being re-elected as an Associate Member representative on the board was Imran Khawaja, with Pankaj Khimji, chairman of the Oman Cricket Board and vice-president of the Asian Cricket Council, replacing Mahinda Vallipuram.

“I would like to welcome the elected Associate Member directors on to the board for the next term,” Greg Barclay, the ICC chairman, said in a press release.

“I look forward to working with Imran, Pankaj and Neil to continue to push the sport forward by delivering the strategy and growing the game so that more people can enjoy cricket across the world.”

Speight was first elected to the ICC’s executive board in 2011 and is the first representative from the Americas Region and Bermuda to do so.

He lost a vote to retain his place in 2016 but was first re-elected in 2020.

Speight first became involved with the BCB in 1995 as one of the six club representatives.

He was treasurer of the board in 1997, when the entire executive under president Ed Bailey resigned. Speight, who was not present at the meeting, did not resign and was the only executive who was still present when El James was voted in as the new president a week later.

The former National Sports Club captain also served as treasurer under Reginald Pearman before later becoming chief executive in 2005.

He resigned as chief executive of the BCB in 2018 after 24 years of service to Bermuda cricket.

However, Speight still looks out for the island’s interests along with the other 91 Associate countries he serves as an ICC Associate Member director.
