Cricket has fallen on hard times

2008-04-29 00:00

Evidently Malcolm Speed has had enough of the shenanigans masquerading as leadership taking place at the newly reconstructed International Cricket Council (ICC).

Inevitably Speed found himself called upon to defend the indefensible. As a dutiful ICC chief executive, Speed had often been called upon to support policies he privately opposed. But he reached his breaking point. A man can only stomach so much. And so he departed, and not with the usual cosy remarks but with his position made abundantly clear. He is not a man for grandstanding and detests empty vapid gestures and liberal smugness. His resignation spoke of fury not indulgence. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
