The speculations believe that the next president of the International Cricket Council (ICC) might be Sourav Ganguly after Shashank Manohar has stepped down of the post latterly.
The cricket veterans have admired Ganguly’s leading capabilities and find him potent enough to uphold the role of the next ICC’s president.
Ganguly does not rush to become ICC president, finds it as a lifetime job
BCCI’s current president finds it hard to uphold the new position as the decision lies mutually in the hands of BCCI and ICC and the man cannot go ahead with the dual roles at the same time.
“I don’t know. At the end of the day, it depends on your board. It’s a decision that is jointly taken by the board. And the roles in ICC have changed. If you are an ICC independent chairman, you have to give up the position in your respective board. It’s not the same as before where you could hold both the positions. And it’s not a change from BCCI, it’s a change from ICC,” Ganguly told India Today
“The current BCCI constitution allows you to hold a post. You are not allowed to hold 2 posts in the BCCI but you’re allowed to hold a post in the BCCI and in whatever, whether it’s the ACC or the ICC. But the ICC does not allow,” Ganguly stated.
“I don’t know whether it is right at this stage or whether I will be allowed at this stage to leave BCCI in the middle of all this. So, don’t know. That’s where it stands. And I am in no hurry. I am young and you don’t do this forever,” he added.
