Statement on ECB response to ICEC report

25th September 2023

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has today published its response to the Independent Commission for Equity in Cricket's (ICEC) report that was released in June of this year.

The report detailed its findings following a call for evidence to evaluate the state of equity in cricket and establish the realities of people's experiences within the sport.

Today, the ECB detailed its response which it hopes will "make cricket a more inclusive sport".

Following the ECB publishing these steps, we've released this statement.

"We note the publication of the ECB’s comprehensive response to the ICEC report that was published earlier this year.

"We're currently reviewing it and will set out more detailed views in due course – also following a scheduled meeting with the chair and chief executive of the ECB to discuss directly their approach and priorities.

"The ICEC report raised serious issues of public concern and highlighted a number of areas where positive change is now imperative.

"As we said in our statement in June, it will be vital that the ECB take significant action over the long term to ensure that cricket is seen as a sport that is open to everyone."
