New Delhi — Sharad Pawar, the chief of the Indian cricket board, Friday submitted his nomination for the post of International Cricket Council (ICC) president after the four Test-playing Asian countries reached a consensus on the issue.
At a meeting of the Asian Cricket Council in Singapore, Pawar’s name was agreed upon and sent for the ICC top job.
Incumbent ICC president Percy Sonn still has two years more in the post but the process of filing nominations will end Monday.
Earlier, board secretary Niranjan Shah had said the Asian countries had agreed to back Pawar for the post.
Former Indian board chief A.C. Muthiah is the head of the ICC’s nomination committee and the voting on the nominations will take place at the annual meeting of the world body in July in London.
