New Delhi:The International Cricket Council has scheduled a meeting on Thursday with South African Haroon Lorgat, a favourite for the job of the world body's CEO after its preferred choice Imtiaz Patel backed out.
A "senior representative", most likely ICC's president-elect David Morgan, will meet with Lorgat in Cape Town.
"I have been asked to make myself available tomorrow (Wednesday) for a possible meeting with a senior ICC representative.
However, I am not in a position to discuss the nature and subject of the proposed discussion," Lorgat was quoted as saying by 'Cricinfo'.
ICC resumed its efforts to find a candidate to succeed Malcolm Speed, who steps down in June, following the withdrawal of Imtiaz Patel from the candidature three days ago.
The report said the ICC is keen on taking a final decision regarding the appointment of the new CEO in next 10 days and Lorgat had "99 per cent chance".
Former South Africa wicketkeeper Dave Richardson, who is ICC's general manager, is another candidate in the fray.
