CSA not in favour of Ganguly for ICC top post after Smith's backing

CSA not in favour of Ganguly for ICC top post after Smith's backing

Johannesburg, May 22 (UNI) Cricket South Africa (CSA) President Chris Nenzani on Friday clarified its position after Director of Cricket Graeme Smith had backed former India skipper Sourav Ganguly as the next ICC chairman.

“We must respect both the ICC protocol and our own protocol in deciding which candidate to back,” Nenzani said in a statement.

“There have been no candidates nominated as yet and once such nominations have been made the Board of CSA will take its decision in terms of its own protocol and give the chairman the mandate to exercise his vote as an ICC Board Director accordingly," said he.

"Smith on Thursday had backed Ganguly to fit the top ICC post during the media interaction, as fomer skipper has played at highest level, he is respected; and his leadership will be key to us going forward."

“We have the highest regard for the opinions of our Director of Cricket, Graeme Smith, who is a well-respected figure in world cricket and has already made an immense contribution in fulfilling his mandate to make our cricket teams world leaders again.

“At the moment we don’t want to anticipate any candidates who may be nominated for this important position to lead the game we all love,” concluded Nenzani.
