i read the article around 10 hours before you posted it, and honestly i didn't get why the writer was making a big deal about him. i also didn't support his statement on letting ontong play due to his color. imo - the best 11 should be chosen, regardless of race/ethnicity/religion, even if that prevents blacks in SA from playing test cricket. i feel that their "anti racism" tactic is actually a big example of racism on the grounds of skin color - never supported picking an inferior (in terms of quality) black player on top of a better white one.

What is the procedure of selecting the ICC president?

How they are selected?? Is there any election or something.??
