Cricket South Africa refuses to back Smith's support of Ganguly

General News Graeme Smith wants Sourav Ganguly to head ICC after COVID-19 crisis

Faul also said that he welcomed Smith's call for Ganguly to head the ICC, but cautioned that it was not yet official policy endorsed by the CSA board.

Smith's open endorsement of Ganguly is a brand new turning level as former England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) chairman Coleen Graves was nonetheless a robust contender.

Smith's endorsement of Ganguly comes days after another former worldwide captain, David Gower, had said that he saw an ICC leader in Ganguly. I feel that someone like Sourav Ganguly is best positioned for that at the moment", sport24.co.za had quoted Smith as saying."I know him well, I played against him a number of times and worked with him as an administrator and in television.

BCCI president Sourav Ganguly could emerge as the top contender for the International Cricket Council (ICC) chief's role.

The untold truth of Baskets actor Hagen Mills
The 34-year-old further informed the police that her mother and child were held by the actor until she arrived home. In 2011, he had some luck with short films and by 2013, he was cast in the film Bonnie & Clyde: Justified.

Shashank Manohar, the current chairman of ICC and also a former president of the BCCI, had said last December that he would not seek re-election when his term expires at the end of May 2020. On Thursday, the former Indian captain got a firm thumbs-up from Cricket South Africa which said "strong leadership" was necessary at ICC and Ganguly was "best positioned" to be at helm. "We are consistently looking at strategies for tours, what the FTP (Future Tours Programme) looks like, what our focus is going to be over the next period of time", he added.

Faul was referring to discussions that he and Smith had had in India with BCCI to host a three-match T20 series in South Africa in August to assist CSA in its declining revenue. Our engagement with Sourav has been very positive in his willingness to help us. Smith believes that the game will need someone strong to lead after COVID-19 pandemic subsides. "We must respect both the ICC protocol and our own protocol in deciding which candidate to back". A scenario where Ganguly is the ICC chairman, Jay Shah the BCCI president, Arun Singh Dhumal the BCCI secretary and N Srinivasan as the Indian cricket board's representative to the ICC is always a possibility.

"He (Ganguly) has the credibility and leadership".

"I don't think there are any nominations out there of any candidates that I know of, so they are still in the process, but from a CSA point of view, we have no problem supporting any Indian candidate". He also said that if a mandate is needed to elect Sourav Ganguly, they can get it from their board chief. The ICC has not come out with a notification for the election and it is expected that some kind of announcement could be made after a meeting on May 28.
