After failing to contest for the spot of the ICC Chairmanship for the second consecutive term, with New Zealand’s Greg Barclay continuing on the role, Imran Khwaja has faced no fork on the road to secure the services of Deputy Chair of the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Friday (November 25).
No nomination was filed against him this time unlike the last time when Khwaja found a candidate opposite him in the form of Cricket West Indies' Ricky Skerritt.
Khwaja currently holds an Associate Member Director position on the ICC Board having been re-elected at the ICC Annual Conference in July 2022. Khwaja was first elected to the ICC Board in 2008 and has served as Deputy Chair since 2017.
While most of the ICC dispensation remained the same as of 2020, the major change came in the form of Jay Shah taking over the Finance and Commercial Affairs (F&CA) chairman position. That is seen as a landmark change in the ICC, and has the potential to further sway the power in favour of India.
