The powerful Afro-Asian bloc today thwarted former Australian Prime Minister John Howard's bid for the ICC Vice-President's post, prompting the governing body to seek a new candidate from the Australian and New Zealand cricket boards.
 "The ICC Executive Board today met to discuss the nomination of the Honourable John Howard AC for the role of ICC Vice-President for the period 2010-12," the International Cricket Council said in a statement.
"Following lengthy consideration it was recognised that the nomination put forward by Cricket Australia and New Zealand Cricket did not have sufficient support within the ICC Board. No vote was taken.
 "Under the ICC's regional rotation process for the nomination of the ICC Vice-President, which was adopted by the ICC in October 2007, Cricket Australia and New Zealand Cricket have now been invited to re-nominate a candidate by 31 August, 2010," it added.
