NZ Cricket says yet to ask Sir John Anderson about ICC role

12:38 pm on 8 July 2010

New Zealand Cricket says it's yet to discuss with its former chairman, Sir John Anderson, whether he's still prepared to be nominated for the ICC vice presidency, in the wake of former Australian prime minster John Howard's rejection.

Howard was jointly nominated by New Zealand and Australia, ahead of Sir John Anderson, but the ICC's rejected Howard and is demanding a new nominee.

The nomination's traditionally rubber stamped by the ICC and the nominee then spends two years as the ICC's vice president, before taking over the presidency.

New Zealand Cricket chief executive Justin Vaughan says the New Zealand board will discuss what action to take when it next meets in just over two weeks' time.

He says New Zealand Cricket president Allan Isaac will ask Sir John whether he's still available, but says that conversation won't happen till next week as Isaac's out of the country.
