ICC to declare election process next week in another meeting

ICC on Thursday deliberated via teleconference, the process of electing the next ICC chairman. The post is held by the Chairman Shashank Manohar, whose successor would be chosen through this process. 

Shashank Manohar has already served two stints of two years each and has announced that he will not be contesting again for the chairmanship. 

The date of the election is not declared yet but yes the primary agenda of the board is the discussion on the nomination process for Shahank’s replacement. It is believed that the process is likely to be announced by next week. 

ICC Board generally conducts its Annual Conference in June, however, due to the ongoing Pandemic, it was deferred by two months. Manohar has agreed to serve as the Chairman of the board until the annual conference takes place.

This would mean that the fate of the T20 World Cup would not be known until the middle of July. ICC is yet to come out with a timeline on the election process which hopefully will be announced in another 10 days. 

The ICC board comprises one chairman, 12 playing nations, 3 associate members (Malaysia, Scotland, and Singapore as per this turn), the independent female director currently served by Indra Nooyi, and chief executive, Manu Sawhney. 

Currently, ECB Chairman Colin Graves is on the top of the list as the replacement to Shashank with Sourav Ganguly as another popular choice. Sourav Ganguly is representing Board Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).  Between Ganguly and BCCI, none has denied the possibility of him contesting for the elections. 

In a media interaction, Ehsan Mani the Chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board has already ruled himself out the possibility of contesting for the ICC’s chairmanship. As per him, his current priority is to pick up the sport on the domestic front. 

Dave Cameron, the chairman of the West Indies also has certain backers but it will depend on the qualifications set by the board. 

Hopefully, all the air would be cleared by next week. Stay connected with us to get all the latest updates on Cricket here.
