PepsiCo chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi has been appointed to the International Cricket Council (ICC) Board as its first independent woman director.

Nooyi will join the Board in June to align with the term of the ICC independent chairman, following the unanimous confirmation of her appointment at Friday's meeting, an ICC release stated.

"I am thrilled to join the ICC as the first person to be appointed to this role. I look forward to working with my colleagues on the board, ICC's partners and cricketers around the world to grow our sport responsibly and give our fans a new reason to follow every ball and shot," Nooyi said.

ICC chairman Shashank Manohar said: "Adding another independent director, particularly a woman, is such an important step forward..."

The introduction of an independent director, who must be a woman, was approved by the ICC Full Council in June 2017 as part of the wide-ranging constitutional changes aimed at improving the governance of the sport.

The independent director will have a two-year term. She may be re-appointed for two further terms with a maximum six-year consecutive period of service.
