The annual conference will commence with meetings for associate members on July 19 (Friday). Following this, the Chief Executives’ Committee (CEC) will convene on July 20 (Saturday). On July 21 (Sunday), the Finance and Commercial Affairs Committee, a sub-committee of the CEC headed by BCCI secretary Jay Shah, will meet. The conference will conclude with the Annual General Meeting of the ICC on July 22.

Speculation surrounds Jay Shah’s potential candidacy for the ICC chairman’s post, currently held by Greg Barclay of New Zealand. Despite widespread speculation, Shah has not disclosed his intentions, leaving the cricketing world in anticipation.

In response to criticism regarding the pre-seeding of teams in the Super 8 stage, the ICC has clarified its decision was driven by logistical considerations. “The Caribbean is a challenging region to travel and find accommodation, so the teams were pre-seeded to help fans/media/stakeholders travel and book ahead/plan for the Super 8 games of the T20 World Cup,” explained a source closely monitoring the developments.
