Cricket Scotland can confirm the resignation of its Chair, Anjan Luthra, with immediate effect. Cricket Scotland will not comment further on his resignation, other than to thank Anjan for the considerable time and energy he has spent during his time on the Board. There will not be any response to the personal opinions that have been made public following his resignation.
Cricket Scotland has been in constant contact with sportscotland throughout the day to put in place short term measures to enable the governing body to continue delivering its programmes of work, and we are appreciative of their continued support. This includes progressing the appointments of a fixed term Head for the “Changing The Boundaries” work and an interim Chief Executive Officer. The cricket season is less than four weeks away and there is much to be done, and the team remain fully focused on delivery in all areas.
The independent investigation team, led by Harper MacLeod LLP and Sporting Equals, continue to work on the referrals process, with oversight from sportscotland. Cricket Scotland continues to support this process and will be ready to deal with these cases as they emerge from the investigations phase. It is in everyone’s interest that this process is brought to a conclusion as soon as possible.
