Poll: The current ECB leadership is trustworthy

Given all the talk of "trust" being the paramount consideration in decisions taken by the ECB leadership, the leadership itself is trustworthy. Agree or disagree?

The amount of leaks make it an obvious no. It's difficult to trust such a bunch of incompetent fools.

I was considering Comte's eloquent defence of the ECB recently, trying to balance examples of it making successful strategic decisions. While it clearly isn't always incompetent it has to be said many of its strategic decisions over the years have been little short of disastrous. Therefore I cannot consider it to be trusted as a competent manager of the game, and given its record of leaks and treatment of certain players, a trustworthy organisation.

It is the ongoing pattern of leaks which are most disconcerting for me. I realize the cricketing community is very tight knit, and that all the journos are former players with their "contacts", but that really is no excuse for, for example, the horrible handling of Peter Moores' release from the head coaching position.

Interesting slant on the question, narrowing it down to the current ECB leadership. There's a difference between "trustworthy" and "agreeing with their position / decisions". I may (and do) disagree with Straus's position on KP, but that doesn't mean I necessarily don't find him trustworthy. I am more circumspect about Graves, due primarily because I believe he must have been aware of what KP believed was the situation when he returned to County cricket, yet did not take the opportunity to clarify matters at the time. But he's only one person.

Given the performance over recent years I don't really feel I can assume trustworthy until demonstrated otherwise, and given the current leadership I don't really feel it is fair to assume untrustworthy until proven otherwise. So I don't really feel I have enough data to answer this question, and will abstain.

Trust will be lost if people are shown to be deceitful, but also if they are incompetent or just inconsistent or forgetful. There are certainly cricketers and cricket administrators around the world that fall into the first category. I'm not sure either the ECB, KP, Strauss or Cook are being actively dishonest here, but there has been a definite breakdown in meaning and communication.

I think the Graves - KP conversation is one example of this. Graves has taken umbrage at the suggestion that he was deceitful, but one can deceive without meaning to.

Strauss is in a bit of a honeymoon period right now, and should be thanking Ben Stokes for his inspirational performance, capturing the imagination of the fans and diverting attention from the recent issues. Add to that the recruitment of a coach who has some credentials with white ball cricket who also worked with Farbrace. Just maybe, with some attacking intent in the Ashes and a bit of the rub of the green, maybe the ECB can turn the corner.
