Shashank Manohar to complete his full term as ICC Chairman

The International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed Shashank Manohar will continue to function as the Independent Chairman of ICC until the end of his elected term which is June 2018. Last March, Manohar had decided to step down from chairman’s post citing “personal reasons” only to be persuaded by the ICC directors — both Full Members and Associates .According to a report, Manohar has once again been persuaded by similarly overwhelming support from a collection of Full Members, who were keen for him to finish the process of reforms he has begun. Initially, Manohar wanted to stay only till ICC Annual Conference in June this year but very recently he has had a change of heart.The Nagpur lawyer now has a strong ground after both the proposed new revenue and governance models received overwhelming support. According to BCCI’s Committee of Administrators (COA), the governance model is a bigger cause of concern rather than revenue model.
