Manohar is to serve second term for ICC
India’s Shashank Manohar has been reelected chairman of the International Cricket Council for another two years, the sport’s world governing body said Tuesday.
Manohar, who became the ICC’s first independent chairman in 2016, was elected unopposed for a second term after a tenure marked by broad reforms. He was the sole nominee for the position.
As chairman he spearheaded efforts to restructure the ICC to curb the dominance of cricket’s three wealthiest nations, Australia, India and England. The former head of the Indian board successfully revised the ICC’s governance and pushed for the appointment of its first independent female director.
“The sport is in good health but we are the guardians of the game and we must continue to work hard to maintain that,” Manohar said.
