Former South Africa Captain Smith bats for Ganguly to head ICC

Sourav Ganguly Star Of

"Post-COVID, cricket will need strong leadership and it is time for someone close to the modern game with leadership credentials to get into the position", he added. I think he has the right attitude and can keep things together and will do good job.

Sourav Ganguly was constantly chosen because the President of the Board of Management for Cricket in India (BCCI) in October 2019.

In the wake of Ganguly's tenure so far, voice is being raised that Sourav Ganguly should be appointed as the ICC President.

As soon as he's achieved with the BCCI, Graeme Smith wants Ganguly to take over the ICC, which is at present beneath the cost of Shashank Manohar.

The divisions in South African cricket were exposed again when Cricket South Africa (CSA) president Chris Nenzani said Graeme Smith's call for Sourav Ganguly to become International Cricket Council chairman did not have official approval.


Jacques Faul, chief executive of the successful Titans franchise, was appointed as interim chief executive and Smith took the director of cricket role after initially expressing misgivings.

David Gower, former England captain and one of the most graceful left-handers to have ever graced the game, said about his fellow southpaw: "I think he (Ganguly) is a very, very good man and has those political skills".

"So I think that is going to be an interesting time going forward in global cricket and I think that will be a great appointment", Smith said.

"We have always closely worked with India and it must play a leadership role in the FTP and a responsible one". Our engagements with Sourav has been positive and his willingness to help us. "We need to get together and work out how to get cricket up and running", he said. In yet another display of "strength at its highest", the BCCI president, who is spending time at his home in Kolkata due to the coronavirus lockdown, lifted, pulled back and fixed a mango tree in his balcony. We would support an Indian candidate at this stage. From the CSA point of view, we don't see problems in supporting an Indian candidate. But we have also got to maybe look at the integrity of the whole process.

"There have been no candidates nominated as yet and once such nominations have been made the Board of CSA will take its decision in terms of its own protocol and give the chairman the mandate to exercise his vote as an ICC Board Director accordingly", said he.
