Shashank Manohar, chairman of ICC has reversed his decision to step down. He now says that he would see out his tenure at the top of the world’s cricket body.
Earlier in March, Manohar said that he was going to step down immediately due to “personal reasons”. However, he was persuaded by Full and Associate members of ICC to continue till June. And as it seems he will continue his term which ends on June 2018.
During the statement and revised decision, Manohar had thanked the directors for “overwhelming support”, and opted to return till the annual conference in June when new ICC constitution comprising the governance structure and finance model will be ratified.
His decision to continue, though, will be a major boost for the Member Boards that voted in favour of reforms to governance and financial structures of cricket’s governing body in April.
