KARACHI: The two-day board meeting of the International Cricket Council (ICC) will be held in Perth (Australia) from Saturday.
Agenda of the meeting includes Zimbabwe, Future Tours Programme post-2012, ICC Champions Trophy 2009 and Indian Cricket League (ICL).
A task team headed by the President of the West Indies Cricket Board, Dr Julian Hunte, will present an interim report to the ICC Board on Zimbabwe.
The ICC Board will discuss preparations for the Champions Trophy, due to take place in September/October.

Board will also take up and discuss the ICL’s application to be approved by the ICC.
The ICC Board consists of the chairman or President from each of the 10 full members plus three associate member countries.
The ICC Board meeting will be presided over by the ICC president and attended by the ICC chief executive, the ICC vice-president and the ICC principal advisor.
