ECB to ICEC report and says it wants to change the game
According to the Independent Commission for Equity in Cricket (ICEC), discrimination in cricket is widespread in England and Wales.
A majority of the 44 recommendations in the ICEC report are accepted by the ECB.
Among them is the creation of an independent gaming regulator.
Richard Gould, ECB chief executive, said “The ICEC report was a huge moment for the sport, and we take our responsibility extremely seriously.”
In terms of what cricket looks like and will look like in the future, we think we are on a journey to change history.”
In its June report, the ECB was recommended to issue an unreserved public apology for its failures, which chairman Richard Thompson did immediately.
We want to double down on our apology to those we have disappointed and discriminated against, Thompson said on Monday.
