Lahore - The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s Board of Governors (BoG) is also set to announce a candidate, who will take over as the next president of the International Cricket Council (ICC), in its quarterly meeting to be held here at the Gaddafi Stadium today (Wednesday).

During the annual meeting of ICC officials held in Melbourne last June, Pakistan was awarded the right of selecting the next president of the game’s ruling body. An inside source told this scribe that a few names were under consideration, but a former board chairman was likely to be chosen for the post as Pakistan hopes to get some clout in important ICC decisions.

The Pakistan nominee will succeed Bangladesh’s Mustafa Kamal in 2016. After the introduction of a chairman’s post, the president has most of its powers curtailed. However, the post remains symbolically important in the ICC framework. By installing a president for the two-year tenure, the PCB is seeking improvement in its relations with the ICC members along with the possibility of inviting foreign teams for cricketing tours.

The BoG meeting will also decide the fate of national team’s manager and chief selector Moin Khan in it meeting. Moin has come under fire for his apparent failure to deliver suitably in the challenging dual role as the cricket team continues to be plagued by inconsistent results. He is expected to be relieved of the task of managing the team and asked to concentrate fully on selection matters.  The BoG is also expected to review Pakistan’s woeful run against Australia in the ODIs staged in the UAE earlier in the month. The ensuing ODI captaincy debate is also likely to come under discussion as the members contemplate captain Misbahul Haq’s form leading up to next year’s World Cup.
