ICC may scrap rotational policy for president’s post

New Delhi: The International Cricket Council (ICC) is planning to scrap the rotation policy for appointing presidents, a media report said on Monday.

“The ICC is planning a significant change to the governance of the game by scrapping the rotation policy currently in operation for appointing presidents. The change is likely to be put up for endorsement at June’s annual general meeting of board members in Hong Kong,” Cricinfo reported.

Pakistan and Bangladesh are to put up the next candidates for president and vice president and both are believed to have objected to the change, the report said.

“But ICC sources have confirmed that plans are underway to change the rotation policy, which was the main topic of discussion at an ICC governance committee meeting in Chennai last week.”

There was a controversy when former Australian prime minister John Howard was nominated for the ICC vice presidency in 2010. Under the current policy, the vice president is the president-designate.

Other nations rejected Howard’s candidature, causing a huge uproar at last year’s annual conference in Singapore. New Zealand and Australia finally nominated Alan Isaac in place of Howard. (IANS)
