Dave Cameron confirmed he would be seeking to become the next head of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and asking Cricket West Indies (CWI), which he led for three terms, to back his nomination.
Cricket West Indies are the Regional leaders in the America’s Region in which Bermuda is a part of.
“It’s been really about the Big Three (India, Australia and England) for a very, very long time. Hence why I think I would definitely put my hat into the ring. But the other boards need to want a change and need to want to move world cricket forward,” he said in an interview.
Cameron will require the support of two full members of the ICC in his bid to succeed Shashank Manohar of India as chairman of cricket’s world governing body.
Asked whether he would be approaching CWI for one such endorsement, the former ICC executive committee member responded in the affirmative: “Absolutely. Of course, I will ask the West Indies Cricket Board.”
If nominated, Cameron says he will be looking to tap into the vastly untouched market of the Americas.
