Ian Watmore cleared to become chairman: England and Wales Cricket Board
LONDON: The England and Wales Cricket Board on Friday confirmed that Ian Watmore will take up the role of ECB Chairman after a review into his conduct in a previous appointment found "no wrongdoing".
The 61-year-old, who had resigned as an independent non-executive director at the English Football League (EFL) in November 2018, citing poor health, was named as Colin Graves' successor in February by the ECB.
However, ECB was forced to review its decision after it was reported in the English media that the EFL had began an independent inquiry a week before his departure into a claim that Watmore was involved in talks which led to EFL clubs threatening to launch a breakaway league, jeopardising a broadcast deal with Sky Sports.
