Daviad Morgan to head ICC

LONDON: David Morgan of England will be the next president of cricket’s world governing body in 2008 and will be succeeded two years later by Sharad Pawar of India. The ICC has returned to its policy of rotating the presidency, so Pawar will take over from Morgan in 2010, a year before India co-host the World Cup with Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. After meetings between Morgan, Pawar and ICC chief executive Malcolm Speed, the ICC announced on Friday that Morgan will take over in June 2008. — AP
