"After 10 years at ECB I believe it is the right time to step aside and retire from the position of chief executive as I shall turn 60 in the spring and I do believe the time is right for a new CEO to open the batting," Collier said in an ECB statement after British media reports on Saturday had flagged up his impending exit.
