Manohar to step down

11 Dec 2019


NEW DELHI: India’s Shashank Manohar has said he won’t seek a third term as chairman of the International Cricket Council and will step down next year, according to a report on Tuesday.

Manohar was elected unopposed for a second two-year term last year after a tenure marked by broad reforms.

But the 62-year-old former head of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) told The Hindu newspaper that it is time for a new person to take charge.

“I am not interested in continuing for another two-year term,” Manohar was quoted as saying.
