Shashank Manohar steps down as BCCI chief

New Delhi : Board of Control for Cricket in India president Shashank Manohar on Tuesday stepped down from his position, seven months after he succeeded the late Jagmohan Dalmiya in his second stint as the head of the cricketing body.

The development came after the Supreme Court-appointed Justice Lodha committee recommended that an administrator cannot occupy two posts at the same time in different governing bodies.

Last month, the International Cricket Council board, during a meeting in Dubai, had agreed that the election of its Chairman will be held through a secret ballot in late May in a bid to re-establish the ‘independent’ position of the Chairman.

“The elected independent Chairman will not be allowed to hold any national or provincial position with any Member Board,” the ICC release from that meeting had stated.

Manohar had replaced N. Srinivasan as the ICC chairman in November. (ANI)
