Sport360 - - Latest News -

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.
