ICC may reschedule New Zealand-Kenya match

February 01, 2003 12:15 IST

In a conciliatory stand on New Zealand's decision not to play their World Cup match in Kenya, the International Cricket Council has said it is looking at various options, including the 'rescheduling' of the game.

"I will be talking to New Zealand Cricket chief executive Martin Snedden as soon as possible to confirm the appropriate ICC disputes resolution process to be used in this instance," ICC chief executive Malcolm Speed said in a statement on Friday night.

Speed said ICC recognises the security issues raised by New Zealand and he will be working to see if there is any prospect of the match being 'being rescheduled'.

"The issue of safety and security is clearly the main concern of both the ICC and New Zealand Cricket, and at present NZC is not satisfied that it is safe to play in Kenya," Speed said.

"The ICC Cricket World Cup Organising Committee and the ICC will make available our intelligence and security advisers, to provide a detailed briefing on the advice that we have received in relation to this game."
