Pakistan does not want anyone in the Big Three to head the ICC
The post of President of the International Cricket Council (ICC) is still vacant. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Several names are being heard in the post of ICC chief. Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Ahsan Mani does not want anyone in the Big Three (Australia, England, and India) to head the ICC Chairman Post.
BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Colin Graves, the former president of the England and Wales Cricket Board, are the most talked-about names. Craig Barclay, chairman of the New Zealand Cricket Board (NZC), and Dave Cameron, former president of the West Indies Cricket Board, are also in the running.
In the end, however, the ICC’s three leaders, India, England, and Australia, maybe the ones to hold the post. But the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) does not want it. Ehsan Mani, president of the board, said he did not want to see any of the three leaders in the ICC’s chair so that cricket could come out of their hands.
In an interview with Forbes Magazine, Ehsan Mani said, “Australia, England, and India are now fighting to free themselves from the politics that they entered in 2014 to hold and strengthen their position. Their method is no longer working.
Mani added, ‘It would be best to have someone (president) outside the Big Three. Because the conflict of interest in the Council (ICC) has become much more now. Which has never happened in 16 years? The ICC needs a neutral director now.
