Shashank Manohar has decided to finish his term as International Cricket Council chairman which ends at June, 2018 that has driven away the speculations of his stepping down earlier. It can be noted Manohar had opted to leave long before completing the term showing personal reasons.
He was later persuaded to continue by ICC directors from full and associate members to continue work.
Receiving thus huge amount of support, Shashank Manohar announced he would be in charge but only till the annual conference this June. Now he will complete his full term until June 2018.
“It has nothing to do with the ICC functioning or these issues which are going to come. Personal reasons means genuinely personal. And I don’t lie” – Manohar was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo.
Earlier in the day, an attempt had been taken to ease the tension between BCCI and ICC was made with the Supreme Court Appointed Committee of Administration (COA) inviting Shashank Manohar to attend the Indian Premier League (IPL) final of 2017 season to be held in Hyderabad on May 12.
