Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

ICC agrees to have split roles for chairman and president

Dubai -  The International Cricket Council (ICC) has finally agreed to go for a constitutional amendment to spilt the role of the president by creating a new post of chairman who won't have any voting rights.

During its executive board meeting, held here Sunday, the ICC decided to go for the split roles and now the amended Articles will now be placed before the ICC Annual Conference in Kuala Lumpur at the end of June for consideration and approval.

A resolution to split the roles was taken in the last meeting of the executive board and Sunday the directors confirmed the necessary amendments to the constitution to split the role of the ICC president and chairman of the board.

The role of the president will be reformed after the Annual Conference in 2014 to separate the chairman of the board position from that of the ICC president. Until then, the current roles for the ICC president and vice-president will remain, after which the vice-presidency will cease to exist and a new post of chairman of the board created.

The term of office for the new ceremonial role for the president will be one year and will rotate, as it currently does, among the members. The president will not be a voting member of the board.

The chairman, who will be appointed by the board for a maximum of six years -- two terms of three years each -- will also be non-voting.

Until the president’s role has been confirmed, the joint nomination of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for the role of vice president 2012-14 was deferred until the amended Articles have been considered by ICC Annual Conference.

During the meeting, the nominations committee reported that they have arrived at a shortlist of four candidates who will be interviewed in due course to replace Haroon Lorgat, the current ICC chief executive, who vacates his position at the end of the Annual Conference in June 2012.
