Cricket: Under-fire chief voted back in; In association with

Giles Clarke has ended his most traumatic week as chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board by being officially reelected for a further two years.

The 55-year-old former chairman of Somerset has faced calls to resign following his role in the embarrassing link-up with Texan billionaire Sir Allen Stanford, who has since been charged with fraud by the US authorities.

But after resisting those resignation demands for the last week, Clarke's re-election was rubber-stamped today, with the 41 members of the ECB, which comprises 18 first-class counties, the 21 county boards, the MCC and the Minor Counties Cricket Association, returning Clarke as chairman for a second term.
