DUBAI – Chairman of International Cricket Council (ICC) Shashank Manohar on Wednesday has stepped down, pakistantribe.com reported.
According to detail, ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar while citing personal reason has resigned after eight months in the office.
Shashank Manohar was one of the outspoken critics of the ‘Big Three’.
The Chairman said in a letter sent to ICC chief executive David Richardson: “I have tried to do my best and have tried to be fair and impartial in deciding matters in the functioning of the Board and in matters related to Member Boards along with the able support of all Directors.
However, he further said that now due his personal occupation he cannot continue to work in the organization.
Earlier, ICC had elected Manohar with consensus as ICC Chairman in May 2016.
It has been noted that during his 8 months tenure as the ICC Chairman, he had struggled on breaking the alliance of the hegemonic countries termed as Big Three structure in order to decentralize the power which are presently being held by the BCCI, Cricket Australia and ECB.
