David Richardson to step down following ICC Cricket World Cup

International Cricket Council chief executive David Richardson will step down from his position once his contract expires after the 2019 World Cup.

ICC said Richardson, who became the first person to hold the position of ICC General Manager Cricket in 2002, was promoted to chief executive in 2012.

Richardson said that the hardest thing as a cricketer is knowing when the time is right to retire. But for me, the end of the ICC Cricket World Cup next year is about right.

The ICC said they would begin a global recruitment process to identify Richardsons successor.
