Pawar does not want Howard

Melbourne: Incoming International Cricket Council (ICC) President Sharad Pawar who is set to replace David Morgan next month does not want former Australian Prime Minister John Howard as his deputy in the interim.

According to reports Pawar is set to meet David Morgan to discuss about the problem over nomination.

The BCCI is set to play a major hand in former Australain Prime Minister John Howard's nomination as ICC president as two African countries are against this move.

Howard who was jointly nominated by Cricket Australia and New Zealand Cricket has faced major resistance from cricket board from Zimbabwe and South Africa. The concerned boards seemed to be unhappy about the nomination and telling Morgan that he was ignoring their sentiments.

Howard"s nomination was supposed to be clarified last month, but an ICC meeting did not discuss the topic because of travel problems caused by the Iceland volcano eruption.

According to ICC norms four votes are needed to stop Howard from taking over the vice-presidency alongside Sharad Pawar, who is set to take over presidency after Morgan leaves next month.

The next ICC meeting is scheduled for Singapore in June.
