The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has introduced an independent regulator in response to a damning independent report into the game.

The report, published in June, said racism, sexism, classism and elitism are “widespread” in cricket.

The regulator’s remit will include safeguarding, anti-corruption, anti-doping and anti-discrimination.

ECB chief executive Richard Gould said it was important cricket had “the best processes in place”.

Former police officer Dave Lewis has been appointed as interim director and will help set up the regulator’s framework before a permanent director appointment is made in 2024.
