Shashank Manohar’s residency as the International Cricket Council’s first autonomous administrator reached a conclusion on Wednesday after he resigned from the job. Manohar assumed responsibility as ICC Chairman in November 2015. “ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar has ventured down following two, two-year residencies at its rudder. The ICC Board met today and concurred that Deputy Chairman Imran Khwaja will accept the obligations of the Chairperson until a replacement is chosen,” ICC expressed in a discharge. Manohar, according to ICC rules, could have remained for an additional two-year term as a limit of three terms are permitted. The 62-year-old attorney had recently been the BCCI President from 2008 to 2011.
The procedure for the appointment of the following administrator is required to be endorsed by the ICC Board inside the following week. ICC Chief Executive Manu Sawhney expressed gratitude toward Manohar “for his initiative and all that he has accomplished for the game as ICC Chairman.”
