One of them is Dave Cameron who has named himself as a candidate for the post, however, the odds of him acquiring the same are very thin. Earlier, Colin Graves was asked for the same, however, again odds are pretty less as he doesn’t have much support among the members of the board.
Until the post is acquired by someone. The interim Chairperson is elected who is Imran Khwaja, the former President of the Singapore Cricket Association. Everyone is unaware of how effective the interim chairperson he is. Even though he has pretty good support among the board members, he could face some resistance from the Indian Governing body.
