The International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Governance Committee has been drafting changes to the global organization’s constitution. It is a long-term working group that is routinely reconstituted in light of directorship changes, and it is led by the intelligent Lawson Naidoo, chair of Cricket South Africa (CSA).

The panel’s mandate is to monitor global events and provide recommendations for a constitutional framework that can guarantee that the international body’s governance is in line with the sport, its global strategy, and its vision and that it is also suitable to carry out the strategy.

Since the plan was adopted in November of last year, the group, led by Naidoo, has developed from its beginnings as the working group for the strategy. Currently, it consists of Greg Barclay, the ICC chair, in addition to the South African, independent director Indra Nooyi, New Zealand Cricket head Martin Snedden, ICC deputy chair Imran Khwaja, Brazil Cricket head Matt Featherstone, and Imran Khwaja.

One of these committees was created five years ago by the previous chair Shashank Manohar and has made several recommendations to the ICC, including the addition of a female independent director to the ICC Board. Since then, Nooyi has held that role.
