Update: Shashank Manohar to finish term as ICC Chairman

Shashank Manohar has decided to continue as the International Cricket Council's (ICC) Chairman until his stipulated term ends in June 2018, it was reported on Wednesday (May 10).

The 59-year-old had stepped down from the position in March this year for "personal reasons". However, he was persuaded by the Full Members and Associates to continue as the Chairman.

As a result of the support from ICC's directors (Full Members and Associates), Manohar had then stated that he would remain as the Chairman until the annual conference set to be held in June, where the new constitution consisting the governance and finance model will be ratified.

Manohar has been at the forefront of proposed reforms to the revenue sharing model in the ICC. When the 59-year-old had replaced N Srinivasan as Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) president in 2015, he had categorically spoken out against the "Big Three" (boards of England, Australia and India) taking over the ICC.

"I don't agree with the three major countries bullying the ICC," Manohar had then said. "That's my personal view, because as I have always said, an institution is bigger than individuals."

On May 10, 2016, Manohar resigned as the president of the board. A few days days later, he was elected as the first independent chairman of the ICC.

Under his tenure as ICC's chairman, Manohar constituted a five-member working group to usher in changes to the governing body's administrative structures. In Ferbuary this year, the ICC proceeded in principle with a new constitution in relation to finance and governance models.

BCCI, who objected to the new structure, lost the vote on 'governance and constitutional changes' by a 2-12 margin while the revenue model was passed 13 votes to one in April.

In the wake of BCCI being outvoted in the Board meeting, the Indian board had charged the ICC of breaching the Members Participation Agreement (MPA). The board had also threatened to issue a notice to the governing body, asking for remedial measures.

There were also speculations that India could withdraw from the upcoming Champions Trophy to be held in England. It was only on May 7, 2016, BCCI decided to give an all-clear for the Indian squad to be selected and decided not to proceed with the notice.

Additionally, towards taking a conciliatory approach in its dealings with the ICC after the row over revenue sharing, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) extended an invitation to Manohar to attend the Indian Premier League final in Hyderabad on May 21.
