International Cricket Council (ICC) reprsentatives Giles Clarke, David Richardson and Ehsan Mani will address - and take questions from - the MCC World Committee at Lord's next week.

Richardson, ICC chief exeucutive; Clarke, England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) chairman and ICC board member and former ICC president Ehsan Mani will present to the committee on the recent restructuring of the ICC.

The MCC World Committee members will be afforded the opportunity to question the trio.

England captain Charlotte Edwards will make a presentation on the future of women's cricket including the development of professional contracts and the new ICC Women's Championship.

Laws and playing regulations including day/night Test matches, pink cricket balls, the size of cricket bats and illegal bowling actions will be discussed, as will the Indian Premier League and its link with the MCC Spirit of Cricket initiative.

Majid Khan, in his final meeting before he leaves the committee, will present on the state of cricket in Pakistan and the steps being taken to repair the damage done by the 2009 terrorist attack in Lahore.

Like Majid, Steve Waugh will be leaving the committee after this meeting having completed his cycle with Sourav Ganguly set to join in October.

The committee, which is an independent body that reports to the ICC, is made up of players, officials and administrators - past and present - with experience in the game at the highest level.

Attending the meeting at Lord's on 14th and 15th July will be: Mike Brearley (chairman), Tim May, Steve Waugh, Charlotte Edwards, Jimmy Adams, Rod Marsh, Rahul Dravid, Majid Khan, Shaun Pollock, David Richardson, Andrew Strauss

Steve Bucknor, Michael Vaughan and Kumar Sangakkara are unable to attend.
