Despite stepping down from the Indian Cricket Board, Sourav’s seat in the ICC Cricket Committee remained intact. After stepping down as BCCI president, Sourav was relieved of cricket administration, and there was no less controversy about him. But Maharaj’s dominance in the ICC continued. Sourav remained as the chairman of the cricket committee. The role of this committee is important in the development and promotion of cricket. Not only this, the ICC Cricket Committee has the right to take all important decisions about cricket.
Last November, Sourav took charge as the chairman of the ICC Cricket Committee. He took over from his predecessor Anil Kumble. Kumble was the chairman of the committee for nine years. Sourav thanked Kumble for dealing with DRS and mysterious bowling action. However, it is not clear how long Sourav is in this position.
Greg Barkley elected ICC chairman Barkley was elected to the post for the second time in a row. His power will be for two years. Jai Shah of India also got the post of financial and commercial affairs. Incidentally, no candidate has been proposed by the BCCI. They support Berkeley.
Barclay was elected unopposed. His opponent, Tavengoa Mukulani of Zimbabwe, withdrew from the race. As a result, it was not difficult to get the support of the rest. After being re-elected, he said, “I am honored to be elected as the ICC chairman for the second time. We have done a lot in the last two years to promote cricket across the world.”
Barclay, a lawyer by profession, hails from Auckland and was previously a New Zealand Cricket administrator. He was elected the ICC chairman for the first time in November 2020. In 2015, he was serving as the director of the 50-over World Cup.
, Barclay, the chairman of the ICC, got the responsibility of the head of the most important committee. “Not every member of the ICC objected to the win,” an ICC source told the news agency. The work of this committee is that the ICC member countries will decide the calculation of dividends, management of sponsorship contracts. Earlier, it was certain that someone from India could sit as the head of this committee. N Srinivasan made all the ‘arrangements’. But Shashank Manohar came and gave up all those customs.
