India's Shashank Manohar resigns as ICC chairman

Shashank Manohar, the Indian chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC), resigned four years later.

According to the details, 62-year-old Shashank Manohar tried to restructure the ICC while in office and ended the dominance of the three richest countries for cricket, Australia, India and England.

He became the first independent chairman of the ICC in 2016 and was elected unopposed for a second term two years later.

However, he recently said he was ready to step down.

ICC Chief Executive Manu Sawhney  said, “On behalf of the ICC board, staff and the entire cricket family, I thank Shashank Manohar for his leadership and for what he has done to improve the game.”

A statement from the council said that with the election of a new chairman, vice chairman Imran Khawaja would assume the responsibilities of chairman.

The ICC is expected to approve the election framework next week and there have been reports that former India captain Saurav Ganguly is being considered for the post.

South African cricket director Graeme Smith has also backed the former teammate, who is currently the head of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

Shashank Manohar has also headed the Indian Cricket Board in the past.

Note that, during a meeting of the Board of Governors of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) last week, Chairman Ehsan Mani had confirmed that he had been approached by ICC directors for the chairmanship of the International Cricket Council, but he clarified that all his energies are for Pakistan cricket.
