Decision on shifting ICC headquarters next month

October 21, 2004


DUBAI, Oct 20: A final decision on whether to move International Cricket Council's (ICC) headquarters from Lord's to another location - possibly Dubai or Malaysia - will be taken before end of November.

"The future location of ICC Office was again discussed by the board with further advice from UK Sport its proposal for the ICC to remain in London being considered," ICC said in a statement.

ICC chief Ehsan Mani some time back had noted that they had a very good offer from the government of Dubai. "But we are also waiting on a final offer from the British government.

"As you know we have been based at the Lord's since 1909, so it is only right that we don't get up and just leave without giving the country that has hosted us for last 95 years the opportunity to also come forward with a proposal."-PPI
