ICC Stand on Graeme Labrooy

ICC Stand on Graeme Labrooy

Following concerns raised by the media over Mr. Graeme Labrooy holding the dual positions of Chief Selector of Sri Lanka Cricket and also the ICC International Match Referee, SLC sought a clarification from the International Cricket Council over the matter.

The ICC’s Senior Manager of umpires and referees; Mr. Adrian Griffith has sent the following; outlining ICC’s stand on the issue.

ICC position

“When the position of Chairman of Selectors was offered to Graeme, he immediately consulted us and we saw no conflict of interest with him holding a position with SLC, such as this, and being a referee.

Our only concern, surrounded ensuring he would not be officiating any games or events, where he was involved in selecting the team.

As such, we did not appoint him to the U19 Cricket World Cup in New Zealand. He continues to be eligible however, to officiate in women’s cricket, as he is not involved in the selection process of the Women’s Team”.
