Former Cricket West Indies Chief Dave Cameron has thrown his hat into the ring to succeed Shashank Manohar of India as the next President of the International Cricket Council. The United States Cricket Hall of Fame recently wrote to Manohar, indicating that they would like to recommend Cameron to the ICC's top position. 

"I believe we need to find a sustainable financial model where teams can earn by merit," Cameron, who served as President of CWI from 2013 to 2019, quoted Jamaica Gleaner as saying. "The big three India, Australia, and England have all the events, the audience, and the biggest economy, but the smaller nations must always come back to the ICC for financial support, so what we want to do is not share income equally, but share equally," Cameron said. The former President of the CWI will need two appointments to stay in office, and it is not clear whether he will receive support from Chief Ricky Skerritt of the CWI, who had replaced him at the helm and had a public spat with him. Manohar will resign as soon as his term ends this year, paving the way for the new President to formally take office. The Annual General Meeting of the ICC is scheduled for the end of July.

England and Wales Cricket Board Chief Colin Grave are currently in the lead for the top position, and BCCI President Sourav Ganguly 's name has also been in the rounds. Cameron said that if he becomes president of the ICC, he would like to take the sport to the USA.

"The overall cricket structure needs to change and different lenses need to be looked at. There's a tremendous opportunity in America, with huge economies untapped, and we need to look at the cricket world from a different perspective, "Cameron said. “We’re still trying to fit Test cricket, T20, ODIs, and world events in the same 12 months with more teams. I think there is a way to look at this to create more money with fewer events and to allow more players to participate in the global game.”
