Will Cricket South Africa Help make Greg Barclay the New ICC Chair?
In this article, we look at the underway ICC election of a new chairman and speculate on the chances of New Zealand cricket’s Greg Barclay beating Imran Khwaja and getting elected to the position. We discuss the composition of the electoral college and explain what it will take for either candidate to win.
There has been a leadership vacuum in the ICC but that could end soon. New Zealand Cricket’s Greg Barclay could be the new chair of cricket’s governing body. The second round of the ICC election has got over and the results are awaited. The winner of the election would need 11 of 16 votes. While the process has been confidential, there is conjecture that Barclay may have flipped the vote of Cricket South Africa to garner the 11 votes he needs to beat Imran Khwaja.
