ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar not Interested in continuing after May 2020

International Cricket Council (ICC) Chairman Shashank Manohar will be stepping down after his term ends on May 2020, as reported by The Hindu.

Manohar, who got elected unobstructed for a two-year term as the global governing body’s first independent chairman in May 2016, resigned in March the following year, citing personal reasons, only to withdraw his resignation a week later.

He got re-elected unopposed for a second two-year term last year in June 2018.

“I am not interested in continuing for another two-year term,” The Hindu quoted him saying “The majority of directors have requested me to continue but I have told them that I do not wish to do so.

“I have been the chairman for nearly five years. I am very clear, I do not want to continue from June 2020. My successor will be known next May.”
