The International Cricket Council (ICC) has approved a further payment of USD 500,000 to Afghanistan

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has approved a further payment of $500,000 to Afghanistan cricket in a bid to help stage more One International (ODI) and Twenty20 International (T20I) matches. “The ICC Board also approved further payments of $500,000 to Ireland and Afghanistan, repeating the additional ICC investment of 2016 to stage more ODIs and T20Is. $250,000 will also be given to each of the other Associate Members with ODI and T20I status for the same purpose,” ICC said in a statement. The statement further added that the investment is to continue to increase the number of competitive teams on the world stage and comes on top of their existing member distribution. “Going forward, it was agreed that a policy be developed as part of the governance review under which future requests will be considered,” ICC added. According to ICC, the further payments were approved during the ICC Board meetings which concluded in Cape Town on Friday with ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar wrapping up the week of committee meetings with a full ICC Board meeting. He said “We have had a productive week working with our Members for the long-term benefit of cricket. We are continuing our work on the whole ICC governance structure, including the revenue share model, and I expect a proposal to go to our board next year. “A number of decisions have been taken, particularly around the governance of cricket in the USA, women’s cricket and funding of associate cricket to drive up playing standards,” he added.
