BCCI’s Shashank Manohar Resigns As ICC Chairman, Leaving Everyone Surprised

Published on 15 March, 2017 at 3:17 pm By

BCCI’s Shashank Manohar on March 15 resigned as ICC Chairman with immediate effect leaving ICC’s top slot vacant.

Manohar, who has cited ‘personal reasons’ for taking this step, acted as ICC Chairman for just 8 months after being elected for the post in May 2016.

Though he was earlier elected as BCCI’s President, when he took over the ICC post, he stepped down from the BCCI post and went in as an independent candidate.

He was the first independent Chairman of the game’s governing body and was elected unopposed.

During his 8 months as ICC Chairman, Manohar led the effort to decentralise the power and monopoly in ICC that is held by ‘The Big Three’ cricket associations, namely Cricket Australia (CA), England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and BCCI.

 

While this imbalance of power and finance was temporarily undone this February with a new constitution being passed, the final decision in that regard will only be taken in April 2017.

His sudden resignation has now left many in shock.
