Former cricketers Sourav Ganguly, Bishan Singh Bedi alongwith Angus Fraser, Clive Lloyd and Bob Willis will assess how the game has changed over the years at ICC History Conference in Oxford this week.
Leading administrators, academics, historians and statisticians will also gather to reflect on the past 100 years at the conference to be held on Wednesday and Thursday as part of the ICC's centenary celebrations.
"One of the key themes of the ICC's centenary year is tradition, to use 2009 as an opportunity to look back at the game's rich history. The history conference should be a fantastic occasion," ICC President David Morgan said in a statement.
Former ICC President Ehsan Mani and the organisation's first Chief Executive David Richards will come together to reflect upon the big issues they had to deal with during their times at the helm of the global game.
The ICC began as the Imperial Cricket Conference in 1909 with just three members – Australia, England and South Africa.
