CSA downplays Graeme Smith’s backing of Sourav Ganguly for ICC chairman’s post

Mamata Banerjee Sourav Ganguly

Is Sourav Ganguly a dark horse to replace his countryman Shashank Manohar, the outgoing ICC chairman? It is no small feat to be the president of an organization like the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) at such a young age.

South Africa's Director of Cricket Graeme Smith has upheld the concept of Sourav Ganguly taking cost as the subsequent president of the Worldwide Cricket Council (ICC) as he is aware of cricket's governing physique lacks "robust management" as soon as the sports activities resumes after the coronavirus crisis.

CSA Chief executive Jacques Faul said their board has always worked closely with India. "But, we need to look who are the others nominated", he added.

Former ICC chairman N Srinivasan, BCCI secretary Jay Shah and former BCCI president Anurag Thakur are believed to be the contenders along with Ganguly. There, though, remains speculation about whether Manohar might extend his term by a few months if asked by the ICC Board as world cricket grapples with the pandemic. The ICC has not come out with a notification for the election and it is expected that some kind of announcement could be made after a meeting on May 28.

Smith's suggestion has created quite a buzz. Not only that, the board of England, one of the most powerful cricketing nations in the world, Colin Graves, the former chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), has also expressed his opinion in favor of Sourav as the chairman of the ICC.

"From our perspective, it would be great to see cricket man like Sourav Ganguly maybe get into the president role of the ICC". I feel that he has got the credibility, the leadership skills and is someone that can really take the game forward and I think that, more than anything, that is needed right now at an ICC level. It is very necessary for modern cricket. The opening partners have shared some of the best partnerships in cricket. Smith on his part said that Ganguly's knowledge of the game would help in being the boss of the global body. He is also an acceptable personality. Hence, Ganguly, due to his leadership credentials and closeness to the modern game, will be a ideal choice for the role.

Ganguly has not been in talks for fairly a while and isn't able to share his future plans, though technically his time period as BCCI president expires in June in response to the brand new structure beneath which he would be the state and nationwide He will full six consecutive years as an officer within the group.
