The post of ICC chairman has been lying vacant for a long time after the resignation of Shashank Manohar of India. The board is still thinking of a process to find an alternative to Manohar. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Money has made a big statement about this. He said that the next chairman of ICC should not be from Big-3 i.e. India, England and Australia. He said that it would be good for the board to get its chairman from another board.
Ehsaan Mani has outdone himself from this race. He was the ICC Chairman from 2003 to 2006. The term of the current chairman of the ECB, Colin Graves, ended on 31 August. He is being seen as the next chairman of the ICC. He said that it is unfortunate that it is taking too long. In the politics that Australia, England and India started in 2014 to preserve their place, they are now seen struggling, because now they are not interested in them. According to Money, there is a big problem of conflict of interest across the board. I have never seen this before, never in 17 years. Such conflict of interest is not transparent.
Please tell that Shashank Manohar took over as the ICC Chairman in November 2015. According to ICC rules, Manohar could hold his post for two more years as a maximum of three terms are allowed. A lawyer by profession, Manohar, 62, was also the President of the Board of Cricket in India (BCCI) from 2008 to 2011. On Manohar’s resignation, ICC CEO Manu Sahni thanked him for his leadership ability and everything he did for the game as ICC chairman.
