Former South Africa skipper and current CSA Director of Cricket Graeme Smith claimed that Sourav Ganguly will be an ideal person to lead ICC in the post-COVID-19 era. Ganguly, who led the Indian cricket team to great heights under his leadership. is currently donning the role of BCCI president. 

Smith feels the game of cricket will need a strong leader in the post-COVID-19 era. He emphasized that someone like Ganguly who has played the game at the highest level will be an ideal man for the job.

"It is very important to have the right person as head of the ICC. Post-COVID, cricket will need strong leadership and it is time for someone close to the modern game with leadership credentials to get into the position,” said Smith, according to AFP.

“It would be great to see a cricket man like Ganguly to get into the role of the ICC president. That will be good for the game. He understands the game, he has played at the highest level and he is respected,” Smith said.

It is not the first time when someone put weight on Ganguly's name as ICC president. Earlier, former England skipper David Gower said that Ganguly has the right "political skills" to lead the ICC one day.

"Ganguly is a very, very good man and has those political skills. He has the right attitude and can keep things together and will do good job. And if you do a good job as BCCI chief in the future, who knows?," Gower said ahead of "Q20", a unique chat show for the fans presented by 'GloFans'.

"But I would actually say the more important job, to be honest, is running BCCI. Being head of ICC is an honour, there is a lot that can be done by ICC, but actually look at the rankings, look at where the power is heading up. BCCI is definitely the bigger job," he said.
