Cameron drops out of race for ICC chairmanship

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Spencer Darlington

Former president of Cricket West Indies, Jamaican Dave Cameron will not be contesting for the post of chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC), having earlier expressed an interest in the position. The 49 year old businessman has failed to get the requisite nominations.
The ICC had decided that the first step to elect the new chairman was one whereby current ICC board members had until this past Sunday to nominate candidates for the position of chairman.

After this, the potential candidate must be seconded by another board member before the elections are held.

CWI vice-presidenr Dr Kishore Shallow spoke with Radio Jamaica Sports on Tuesday, confirming they did not nominate anyone by the October 18 deadline. Dr Shallow also confirmed that Cameron sought the backing of the regional governing body.

Meanwhile, former president of the Singapore Cricket Association Imran Khwaja, who is now interim chairman of the ICC until elections are held, and Gregor Barclay of New Zealand Cricket, are the only two prominent names who will be fighting for the ICC chairman's post to replace Shashank Manohar who recently stepped down following two terms in the role. The position of chairman is expected to be filled by December.
