In May 2010, Giles Clarke CBE, chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board, sent an email to the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, the contents of which were subsequently widely reported in the British and international media which resulted in libel proceedings being issued by IMG.

This statement confirms that Mr Clarke accepts that IMG did not act in breach of International Cricket Council rules and intended to act within the official structures of world cricket.

IMG accepts that Mr Clarke was not intending deliberately to damage its reputation.

On that basis the parties have agreed to settle the litigation on confidential terms.
