Cricket Association of Bihar chairman Aditya Verma has urged the members of the BCCI to bat for a top-notch in the ICC board panel.
Verma made an appeal to the BCCI members to consider a position for the International Cricket Council’s chairman post. Verma wrote a letter to the Indian apex council stating, “My humble request to all respected members of Apex Council of BCCI, why not you are considering someone for the post of Chairman of ICC from the BCCI. BCCI has good Cricket administrators who do good work during his tenure in the BCCI or his State Cricket Associations,”
“At present, they are in a cooling (off) period in the light of the order of the highest court (Supreme Court) of the country,” he added.
Shashank Manohar stepped down as the chairman of the ICC on July 1 after serving two years of his tenure. After his resignation, the deputy chairman Imran Khwaja took over for an interim period.
Verma also suggested the potential candidates from the BCCI who could be the next chairman of the ICC. In his letter, Verma named Jyoti Raje Sindhia, Anirudh Chaudhary, Rajiv Shukla, and Amitabh Chaudhary as the ones who could take the responsibilities.
“In spite of that, Mr N. Srinivasan the former boss of ICC, BCCI and TNCA automatically can be a suitable candidate for the ICC but unfortunately the application of BCCI for the modification is still pending in the Supreme Court for the consideration that’s why Srinivasan name can’t be clear from the BCCI,” Verma said.
“In the tenure of the last chairman of ICC, BCCI lost huge money because the relationship between ICC and BCCI was not very good. If BCCI is giving lots of revenue to other cricket boards through media rights then why not BCCI occupied the Chairman Post of ICC,” he added.
