New Delhi, The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Monday said the process for the election of its next chairperson has begun and is expected to be concluded by early December.
“The process, which is being overseen by the independent chairman of the ICC Audit Committee, has commenced and the first stage is for the nominations of potential candidates to be made by current Board Directors by October 18, 2020. Any nominee will then need to be seconded by another Board Director to become a candidate in the election,” said the ICC in a statement.
“As outlined in the ICC Constitution, to be eligible, potential candidates must be either a current or former ICC Director,” it said.
The post of chairperson fell vacant in July this year after Shashank Manohar stepped down following two two-year term.
