India and Pakistan in a cold battle over ICC presidential election
The ICC board meeting on Monday (August 10) also failed to resolve the issue of the presidency. But in the meantime, the two cricketing superpowers, India and Pakistan, are in a cold battle over the ICC presidential election ICC official described the fight.
Former Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) president Shashank Manohar stepped down as president of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in July this year. The ICC has not yet found a new president.
He said 18 people could vote in the ICC chairman selection process. India-Australia and England want more than half of the 18 candidates to be elected as the next president. But different from Pakistan and other countries. They want the one who gets two-thirds of the votes out of 18 to be the president. So the process of electing the ICC president has started. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
In all that has happened, the ICC has no choice but to hold elections. There is no possibility of appointing a chairman through mutual negotiations. Following Manohar’s departure, rumours are rife in the cricketing arena that the current president of the ICC is BCCI boss Sourav Ganguly, England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) president Colin Graves and West Indies Cricket Board president Dave Cameron. Hong Kong’s Imran Khazar, who is currently in charge of the ICC, is also likely to run for president.
