ICC Chairman Steps Down After Eight Months

March 15, 2017

Shashank Manohar has left his role as Chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC), eight months after taking the position.

The 59-year-old, who previously spent two spells in charge of the BCCI, was elected as the body’s first independent chairman on a two-year term last May. However, he has stepped down from the role less than halfway into his deal.

Manohar said the decision was because of personal reasons, and handed in his resignation on Wednesday.

“I hope the ICC achieves greater heights in future,” the Indian added.
