The International Cricket Council (ICC) today expressed its concern over the future of the Kinrara Oval in Malaysia.

The ground, which has played host to a number of international cricket events over the last decade, is the home of the Malaysian Cricket Association who were given notice to vacate the venue so it could be redeveloped.

ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said: “Cricket in Malaysia is flourishing with the number of players in all age groups growing and the ICC welcomes the intervention of the Minister of Youth and Sport and we are hopeful a sustainable solution can be found. The ICC will continue to support Malaysia Cricket and hopes the Kinrara Oval will remain an international cricket venue.”
