BCCI President Sourav Ganguly said on Thursday that the ICC presidency is “not in my hands”, downplaying strong speculation that the former India captain could go to Dubai. In July, the board of directors of the International Cricket Council (ICC) approved the process to elect the next president of the world organization in November. Following the Birmingham meeting, it was decided that as Greg Barclay ends his term in office this year, the election will be decided by a simple majority and the term of the chairman will be for a period of two years between December 1, 2022 and November 30, 2024. .
The name Ganguly has been doing the rounds ever since. But when asked about it, the elegant batter of yore simply had this to say: “ICC presidency is not in my hands.” The ICC board has decided that a two-thirds majority is no longer necessary to be elected chairman. According to the latest recommendations, the contestant will be chosen as the winner with 51 percent votes.
In a 16-member board, the candidate needs only nine votes from the directors to be elected.
Seasoned Jhulan Goswami retires from international cricket after playing the third and final ODI against England, with Ganguly calling the pacer “an absolute legend”.
“Jhulan is an absolute legend… The last three as BCCI president we have had very good relations… she had a fantastic career. She is almost 40.
“Jhulan will make a mark in women’s cricket. She is a role model, she should be given the highest honor when she is done with Lord’s. She is an absolute champion.”
It’s been a while, but Ganguly still can’t believe India lost the Commonwealth Games final in Australia.
“I still wonder how we lost the CWG final, we were cruising, we were winning… The BCCI is putting a lot of effort into women’s cricket. We won two games in England. I’m happy with the progress.”
