Sports Desk – Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani doesn’t think the new International Cricket Council’s (ICC) chairman should come from any of the “Big Three” boards, even as the global governing body is yet to agree on a process to choose Shashank Manohar’s successor.
In an interview with Forbes, the PCB boss said that support had deepened for “progressive reform to address financial inequity among nations”.
India’s Shashank Manohar stepped down as chairman of the ICC in July after four years in office. Imran Khwaja is serving as the interim chairman.
“It’s unfortunate it has taken so long,” Mani said, according to the publication. “The politics introduced by Australia, England and India in 2014 to protect their positions — now they are struggling to unwind it because it doesn’t suit them anymore,” he added.
Mani said that it would be “healthier” to have someone appointed as chairman beyond the “big three”.
