Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) will support BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, if he desires to be the International Cricket Council (ICC) Chairman, a top SLC official told the Daily Mirror yesterday.
“We will support the former India Captain, if he wants to lead the ICC. And if he doesn’t and the BCCI nominates anyone from India, we will support him,” he added.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Ehsan Mani is no more in contention for the ICC top post, it is learnt.
According to the sources in the PCB, Mani has already indicated this to his confidants in Pakistan.
The BCCI is yet to disclose its cards but few Board Members want either Anurag Thakur or N. Srinivasan to be Shashank Manohar’s successor.
In fact, the current ICC Chairman, Manohar has already indicated that he would not seek a further extension.
Both Thakur and Srinivasan have represented the BCCI in the past.
Few more names from other countries are also being discussed by the other Board Members.
Vice-President Imran Khawaja (Singapore), Colin Graves (ECB) and Giles Clarke (former ECB Chairman) are believed to be in contention and have supports from one or the other Board Members.
