Shashank Manohar re-elected unopposed as independent ICC chairman


NEW DELHI, May 15: Shashank Manohar will serve a second term as the independent chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC) after he was the sole nominee put forward by the ICC Board.
According to an ICC release, Manohar, who became the first independent ICC chairman in 2016, will continue for a second two-year term following his unopposed election. During the last two years, Manohar has led significant reform of the sport, reversing the resolutions of 2014, introducing a revised governance structure, including the appointment of the ICC’s first independent female director and the development of international cricket structures that bring context to the global game and provide more opportunities for more Members to compete.
Commenting on his re-appointment Manohar said: “It is an honour to be re-elected as the chairman of the International Cricket Council and I would like to thank my fellow ICC directors for their continued support. Together we have made big strides over the last two years, fulfilling promises I made to the sport when I was appointed in 2016. (TNN)
