Greg Barclay likely to get re-elected as the International Cricket Council Chair
Greg Barclay is likely to be re-elected for a second time as the International Cricket Board Chair. The New Zelanader, who was nominated for the first time in late December 2020 will serve for another two years. A chairman in total can have three years.
Unlike 2020, Barclay is believed to have a smooth sailing this time around as he is unlikely to have any opposition. The chair of Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC), who had filed nomination against him, is set to withdraw. The election is scheduled for November 12 in Melbourne.
As of Friday (November 11), the election is still a two-way race between the New Zealander and the Zimbabwean, although sources in Melbourne believe the Zimbabwe Cricket chair may quit on election day. The International Cricket board directors are thought to have achieved some sort of agreement.
To file a candidacy, a candidate must have the support of two current directors. It is evident that any candidate seeking to lead the international organisation will need the support of the Indian Cricket Board in India, and the widespread opinion inside the International Cricket Board is that the Indian board has backed the incumbent. Initially, the Indian Cricket Board intended to run a candidate, but decided against it. Jay Shah, the Indian Cricket Board secretary, will be present for the International Cricket Board meetings and election.
The whole election process has been shrouded in such secrecy that no International Cricket official or member has been able to shed light on the election's progress. Indeed, complaints have been received from International Cricket Council observers objecting to the process's secrecy.
