Dubai:International Cricket Council (ICC) chief executive Malcolm Speed said on Friday that he will step down when his contract expires in June 2008.

"That will conclude seven years and I will not stay on longer than that," Speed said from the ICC's headquarters in Dubai.

He denied that the criticism both he and the ICC had received during the World Cup had influenced his decision, insisting that he had made up his mind before then.

The World Cup in the Caribbean lasted for seven weeks and the final, which was won by Australia, descended into farce when it was completed in pitch darkness.
