Shashank Manohar likely to step down as ICC chairman

Shashank Manohar on Tuesday indicated he won't seek a third term as chairman of the International Cricket Council and is likely to step down from his post. He was elected last year for his second two-year term.

The former head of the Board of Control for Cricket in India told The Hindu newspaper that it is time for someone else to take the charge.

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

"Majority of directors have requested me to continue but I have told them that I do not wish to do so.

"I have been the chairman for nearly five years. I am very clear, I do not want to continue from June 2020. My successor will be known next May."

Manohar first became the ICC chairman in 2015, after his predecessor N. Srinivasan was removed following a spot-fixing scandal in the Indian Premier League.

Manohar resigned from the post in 2017 but he was convinced by the ICC board to retake the helm.
