On ICC Chairmanship, This Is What BCCI President Sourav Ganguly Said | Cricket News

Published on


BCCI president Sourav Ganguly on Thursday said the ICC chairmanship is “not in my hands”, playing down strong speculation that the former India captain could head to Dubai. In July, the International Cricket Council (ICC) Board approved the process to elect the next chairman of the world body in November. After the meeting in Birmingham, it was decided that with Greg Barclay ending his tenure this year, the election will be decided by a simple majority and the term of the Chair will be for a two-year period between December 1, 2022, to November 30, 2024.

Ganguly’s name has been doing the rounds since then. But when asked about it, the elegant batter of yesteryear just had this to say: “ICC chairmanship is not in my hands.” The ICC Board has decided that a two-thirds majority is no longer required to be elected as the chairman. According to the latest recommendations, the contestant bagging 51 per cent votes will be elected as the winner.

In a 16-member board, the candidate needs just nine votes from the directors to get elected.

The seasoned Jhulan Goswami is retiring from international cricket after playing the third and final ODI against England, and Ganguly called the pacer “an absolute legend”.

“Jhulan is an absolute legend… Last three as BCCI president, we have maintained very good relations… she had a fantastic career. She is almost 40.

“Jhulan will leave a mark in women’s cricket she is a role model, she should get the highest honour when she finishes at Lord’s. She is an absolute champion.”

It’s been a while now, but Ganguly still can’t believe that India lost the Commonwealth Games final in Australia.

“Still wonder how we have lost the CWG final, we were cruising, we were winning… The BCCI is putting in a lot of effort for women’s cricket. We have won two matches in England.. I am happy with the progress.”
