England and Wales Cricket Board are now in a state of jeopardy.

Their stand-in chairman, Barry O’Brien has decided to step down from the position due to ill-health and has handed over the responsibilities to his next stand-in Martin Darlow.

O’Brien has been in the chairperson’s position since October after the resignation of Ian Watmore.

This has sparked a lot of interest for other candidates such as Ron Kalifa who has left the nominations committee.

ECB looked through many applications for the position of chairman but could not find one suitable candidate for the role.

Thus, they have now decided to start the process anew, this time with Brenda Trenowden to lead the nominations committee.

All of this chaos has ensued since the unveiling of Rob Key as director of men’s cricket.

Additionally, ECB have decided to use the split coaching method and appoint two head coaches for red and white-ball cricket for England’s men’s cricket team.

Also, Ben Stokes is being seen as the next Test captain for England as he has previously been vice-captain under Joe Root and is a favourite among the players and the board.

Stokes is currently recovering from a knee injury but will return to play in the county championship’s next week’s matches.
