Cameron to seek nominations to run for chairmanship of ICC

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Jordan Forte

Former Cricket West Indies (CWI) president Dave Cameron has told Radio Jamaica Sports that he will be seeking nominations to run as chairman of cricket's world governing body, the International Cricket Council (ICC).

However, CWI is yet to receive an official request from Cameron seeking its support.

A week ago reports emerged that the United States Cricket Hall of Fame, wrote to the current ICC chairman Shasank Manohar, indicating that it would recommend Cameron for the top job.

On Friday, Cameron confirmed with Radio Jamaica Sports that he will be seeking the required nominations for chairman of the ICC.

When asked if CWI would be willing to nominate Cameron for the post, vice president Dr Kishore Shallow said he wasn’t sure if Cameron would indeed be challenging for the position, and would rather wait until the board receives official notification, instead of going by what has been revealed in the media.

Cameron and the current CWI president Ricky Skerritt have had an icy relationship, with the latter ordering a recent audit into Cameron's tenure which was the subject of much public debate.

Current ICC chairman Manohar will step down when his term ends this year, and the ICC is set to discuss the process to elect its new chief soon.

England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) chief Colin Graves is favourite to fill the post.

Cameron served as CWI president from 2013 to 2019.
