IAS Prelims 2023

India’s Shashank Manohar has resigned as chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC) due to personal reasons.

Manohar was elected unopposed on a two-year term as the ICC’s first independent chairman in May last year and had pushed for reforms that would curtail the influence India, England and Australia wield over the game’s finances and administration.

After being elected as BCCI president for the second time in October 2015, the Nagpur-based lawyer resigned from the post in May 2016 to be subsequently elected as the first independent chairman of the ICC, for a two-year term ín May 2016.
