Shashank Manohar reelected as ICC Chairman

Posted by

Shashank Manohar has been re-elected chairman of the International Cricket Council for another two years.

Speaking on his reappointment, Manohar said, ‘It is an honour to be re-elected as the chairman of the International Cricket Council and I would like to thank my fellow ICC Directors for their continued support. Together we have made big strides over the last two years, fulfilling promises I made to the sport when I was appointed in 2016. Over the next two years we can look forward to launching a global strategy for the sport in partnership with our members so we can grow the game and ensure more of the world can enjoy cricket. 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, who became the ICC’s first independent chairman in 2016 and was the sole nominee for the position, was elected unopposed after a tenure marked by broad reforms. As chairman, he spearheaded efforts to restructure the ICC to curb the dominance of cricket’s three wealthiest nations, Australia, India and England.
