Shashank Manohar Won’t Have a Third Term in Office

The ICC has confirmed that their chairman Shashank Manohar will not seek a third term in office. 

The International Cricket Council (ICC) continues to discuss how their elections might take place even despite the COVID-19 pandemic. With that, they have adopted a secret ballot system which had failed to be implemented because of the current situation. 

In connection to their upcoming elections, the ICC has confirmed that their incumbent chairman Shashank Manohar will not aim for a third term in office. Manohar became the chairman in 2016 and had been elected unopposed when he aimed for a second term in office last 2018. 

As it had been secured that Manohar will no longer be seeking for a third term, the front-runners as to who may take his place became quite intriguing. Among those who are being considered are ECB chairman Colin Graves and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly. 

Cricket South Africa’s director of cricket Graeme Smith, who recommended Ganguly, says, ‘Leadership in our sport is going to be key, and having someone at a level who understands the modern game, understands the challenges that are going to be faced, emphasises more the people who get put into key positions. I think the president of the ICC becomes a key position’.

The ICC is the governing body of cricket which oversees all matches across the three formats of cricket. To further understand these formats, visit Betwala.
