Former India captain Anil Kumble was on Thursday unanimously appointed chairman of ICC's Cricket Committee by the game's governing body, replacing West Indies great Clive Lloyd.

    
"In Anil Kumble, we have a new chairman who has unquestioned experience not only as a player with India but also as an administrator with Karnataka State Cricket Association as well," ICC President Alan Isaac said in a statement after the Executive Board meeting.
    
Kumble, 41, took 619 wickets in 132 Test and 337 wickets in 271 ODIs wickets during his illustrious 18-year international career.

"I am sure that he (Kumble) will carry on Clive's good work and bring, like Andrew Strauss, contemporary thinking to the committee and both understand clearly the issues facing the modern game," he added.
    
The recently-retired Strauss was unanimously nominated as Ian Bishop's replacement in the committee after the West Indian, representing former players, indicated that he was not seeking an extension to his term.
    
"I would like to thank Clive Lloyd for his chairmanship of the ICC Cricket Committee and to his tireless contribution to the game. The ICC Board were united in their admiration for his work as chairman. We also thank Ian Bishop for his contribution during his term as well," Isaac further stated.
    
According to ICC sources, Kumble has been given a two-year term. The Cricket Committee meets twice a year and the second meeting of the year is likely to be held in November.
    
The ICC Board also agreed to extend the terms of both Mark Taylor (representing former players) and David Kendix (statisticians) for a further term.

The ICC had introduced a Targeted Assistance and Performance Programme (TAPP) fund of USD 12 million in January 2012 to help develop more competitive teams at the highest level by targeting the lower ranked Full Members and higher ranked Associate/Affiliate Members for assistance.
    
"In Colombo the Board received applications and agreed to award Netherlands USD 1.5m, Zimbabwe USD 1.5m and USD 3m to the West Indies - all over three years," the statement said.
   
In other developments, all 10 Full Members informed the ICC Board that they have implemented both the domestic anti-corruption and anti-doping codes.
