Former Cricket West Indies (CWI) chief Dave Cameron has joined the race to replace India's Shashank Manohar as the next ICC president.
The United States Cricket Hall of Fame recently wrote to Manohar that he would like Cameron's name to be recommended for the top post of the International Cricket Council. Cameron, who was president of the CWI from 2013 to 2019, told Jamaica Gleaner, “I believe we need to find a sustainable financial model where teams can earn to the best.”
He said, “The three big cricket nations India, Australia and England have tournaments, spectators and the largest economy, but smaller nations always have to knock on the ICC for financial support.” So even if we do not share an equal share of revenue, this division should be justified. '
The former CWI president will need two nominations to remain in the fray and it is not yet clear whether he will be backed by CWI's current head Ricky Skerritt. The differences of both were publicly disclosed.
Manohar's term ends at the end of this year after which the new president will formally take over. The ICC annual general meeting is scheduled for late July. England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) chief Colin Grave is currently its strongest contender. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly's name is also in the news.
