The International Cricket Council Chairman, Shashank Manohar has stepped down from his post after completing his 2 year-tenure twice.
In a meeting on Wednesday, ICC Board members decided that Imran Khawaja who was serving at the post of deputy Chairperson will be the new chairperson until a new successor is elected.
The process for the Chairperson election is expected to be approved by the ICC Board in the next few weeks.
ICC Chief Executive Manu Sawhney stated that “On behalf of the ICC Board and staff and the whole cricket family, I would like to thank Shashank for his leadership and everything he has done for the sport as ICC Chairman. We wish him and his family all the very best for the future.”
Imran Khwaja also talked about Shashank Manohar’s contribution to World Cricket.
“Everyone on the ICC Board extends their wholehearted thanks to Shashank for the commitment he has shown to our sport. There is no doubt that cricket owes Shashank a debt of gratitude for all he has done for the sport. He has left cricket and the ICC in a better place than he found it.”. He said.
Also, several names are in contention to become the next ICC President which includes the list like Sourav Ganguly, Dave Cameron, Ehsan Mani, etc.
