NEW DELHI, June 24: Deliberation on the nomination process for its next chairman will top the agenda when the International Cricket Council�s all-powerful board converges via video-conference on Thursday.
With the ICC already making it clear that a final decision on the fate of this year�s T20 World Cup will be taken next month, the primary agenda of discussion will be the nomination process for the chairman�s election. The post is currently held by India�s Shashank Manohar.
�I am still not sure whether the date of election (or selection) will be announced tomorrow or not. Obviously the primary agenda is discussion on the nomination process for Shashank Manohar�s replacement,� an ICC board member, privy to the developments, told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
�Obviously, since the members will meet, they will update (the board) about the situation in their respective countries. However, no concrete announcement is expected,� the source added.
Also, the board could be briefed on the investigations being carried on the leaks of classified emails, a member said. For being in the running for the chairman�s post, a member is required to have attended a minimum of two board meetings and also needs to be nominated by a current or past director (board member) of the representative country.
An ICC Board comprises chairman, 12 Test playing nations, three associate members (Malaysia, Scotland and Singapore as per this turn), independent female director (Indra Nooyi) and chief executive Manu Sawhney. � PTI
