ICC New Chairman: Sourav Ganguly, Jay Shah FACE-OFF in offing for top post of International Cricket Council: REPORT

Ganguly vs Jay Shah Face-Off? Report by leading Kolkata daily suggest that two BCCI big shots in Ganguly and Shah are leading the race to become the successor of Barclay.

It was earlier reported that BCCI is very keen to have Indian as the ICC chairman during the 2023 ICC World Cup in India.

Interestingly, Sharad Pawar was the head of ICC during last World Cup in Indian in 2011.

India won the World Cup in 2011. The BCCI is looking for a repeat of that, with either Ganguly or Shah heading the ICC when ODI World Cup once again gets hosted by India in 2023.

Greg Barclay want to call it QUITS? According to the rules, an ICC Chairman is appointed for a tenure of two years, which can be extended to not more than six years.

Currently, Greg Barclay is the chairman of ICC, having assumed office in December of 2020.

He is a commercial lawyer based in Auckland, working with multiple New Zealand and Australian companies.

Given his professional commitment, report suggest that Barclay is unlikely to push for a renewal of his term. Hence, we could see a new boss in ICC in November, 2022.

If Sourav does decide to take the plunge at the ICC, he will want to make sure that he has the numbers in hand if there’s a contest. It is unlikely that the Pakistan board will agree to a BCCI nominee silently. But it’s too early to say if Sourav will give his consent. Shah has (also) shown huge interest in assuming the ICC chair,” a source was quoted saying by The Telegraph. The annual conference of ICC will be held this July, and it will be interesting to see if there are major developments in that meeting.
