ICC President Shashank Manohar has resigned from his post after only 8 months in office.
Manohar was elected unopposed as the ICC's first independent chairman in May 2016 for a two-year term.
Since then, he had led the effort to decentralize the power held by the Big Three: BCCI, CA and ECB.
Manohar addressed a letter to ICC CEO David Richardson saying,
I have tried to do my best and have tried to be fair and impartial in deciding matters in the functioning of the Board and in matters related to Member Boards along with the able support of all Directors.
However, for personal reasons it is not possible for me to hold the august office of ICC Chairman and hence I am tendering my resignation as Chairman with immediate effect.
I take this opportunity to thank all the Directors, the Management and staff of ICC for supporting me wholeheartedly. I wish ICC all the very best and hope it achieves greater heights in future.
