Ray Mali and Malcolm Speed preside over the fateful ICC meeting in Dubai in March © International Cricket Council

Malcolm Speed, the ICC chief executive, has been put on paid leave until his contract runs out on July 4.
Rumours had been circulating for the last month that Speed had had a serious falling-out with Ray Mali, the president, following the ICC executive's decision not to take any major action against Zimbabwe following an independent forensic audit carried out by KPMG.
In a brief statement, David Morgan, the ICC's president-elect, said: "This ... is the result of a fundamental breakdown in the relationship between the CEO and a number of board members, including the president, over a variety of issues that include Zimbabwe.
"David Richardson, the ICC general manager - cricket, will serve as interim CEO until Speed's replacement, Haroon Lorgat, assumes the role at the ICC's annual conference at the beginning of July."

Speed was the only person who was critical of the whole Zim fiasco, whats with the dodgy character Ray Mali, bad news follows him... Fair enough that Speed got sacked but the reasons cited are simply pathetic to say the least. Speed was a terrible chief executive but i shudder to think how bad the next is going to be considering how bad the ICC have led the game of cricket and their inability to fix Zim finances.

Thanks to IPL, i think this news got overlooked.

Good for Speed, now he can go on holiday and not come back to work.
How good is that!
