Shashank Manohar, chairman of International Cricket Council (ICC) has officially resigned from his post after serving a tow year tenure of leadership. The ICC met on Wednesday and agreed in conjunction to let Deputy Chairman Imran Khwaja take the responsibilities temporarily, until the perfect candidate is hired.
The procedure for the Chairperson election, in place of Shashank Manohar, is expected to be approved by the ICC board within the coming week.
ICC Chief Executive Manu Sawhney said, “On behalf of the ICC Board and staff and the whole cricket family, I would like to thank Manohar for his leadership and everything he has done for the sport as ICC Chairman. We wish him and his family all the very best for the future.”
Khwaja also further added, “Everyone on the ICC Board extends their wholehearted thanks to Shashank for the commitment he has shown to our sport. There is no doubt that cricket owes Shashank a debt of gratitude for all he has done for the sport. He has left cricket and the ICC in a better place than he found it.”
