Cricket Nash takes parting shot at ECB bosses

DIRECTOR Andy Nash criticised the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) under chairman Colin Graves for unacceptable standards of governance in his resignation letter yesterday.

Nash, a former Somerset chairman, made public his letter to Graves on Twitter, bringing to an end his 14-year stint on the ECB board.

Nash wrote in an accompanying tweet: “I have today resigned from the ECB board with a heavy heart. Ultimately as a non-executive director if you find yourself with significant disagreements you must walk the plank with dignity and no complaints. I wish all at the ECB & in cricket the very best for the future.”

Central to Nash’s complaints is the plan, revealed by The Times on Tuesday, to pay compensation to Test match-hosting counties in the years they do not stage a match.
