Published: 24 October 2012

The announcement coincides with the publication of a new Lord's TV video, which goes behind the scenes at the committee's last meeting, at the Home of Cricket in August.

The film features comments from a number of the participants, including Rahul Dravid, who says: "One of the major advantages of the World Cricket committee is the independent nature of it.
"It is not governed by any of the international or individual country boards, which presents the opportunity to look at the various issues surrounding the game dispassionately, and view them without concern for any external politics."
New Zealand trip
The next MCC WCC meeting will be held in Auckland on Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 February 2013.
This will be the first WCC meeting to be held in New Zealand, and coincides with England’s Twenty20, One Day International and Test Match tour to the nation during February and March 2013.
Mike Brearley, in his latest blog - which can be read here - said he was pleased at the decision to travel to New Zealand.
He added: "Amongst the aims of our committee is to visit the main cricket playing countries, and New Zealand is one which we are yet to have experienced.
"It’s the perfect opportunity with England playing there in early 2013."
