A recent decision taken in an official meeting of the Board of the International Cricket Council might see the current president of the Board of Cricket Control in India step down from his position.

Shashank Manohar, who took over the chair from former president N Srinivasan is likely to step down as the president of the BCCI according to recent reports.

This comes on the back of a proposed structural revamp of the ICC board.

In a recent meeting of the Board and Committee of the International Cricket Council in Dubai, it was decided that its chairman will be an independent one and will be elected in a secret ballot in May.

“The election process will be overseen by the ICC’s independent Audit Committee Chairman and all present and past ICC directors will be eligible to contest the election.”

“However, candidates can only be nominated by a fellow ICC director who, in turn, will be allowed to provide no more than one nominee.”

“Any nominee with the support of at least two Full Member ICC directors will be put forward as a candidate for election,” a press release from the meeting of the ICC officials read.

However, it is understood that he might be elected as the president of the ICC in the polls that will take place next month.

It was also confirmed that Manohar has emerged as the unanimous choice to head the governing body of world cricket. It was also released that all 13 members of the board are in favor of the decision going Manohar’s favor.

The Supreme Court’s decision to implement the Justice Lodha Committee has seen unrest in the BCCI and it is said that nobody in the cricket body is clear about what the new organizational structure would entail.

It is also understood that many of the other office bearers are also afraid of losing their position on the board.

According to new rules passed during the tenure of Manohar himself, no individual can hold an important post at the ICC while simultaneously be the Board President. The ICC election is due in May.

And his will see Manohar step down as the president of the BCCI. There are rumors that Sharad Powar might be back in contention for the position.

We will get to know about the results of the pool by May 23rd which might prove to be a significant date in the future of the sport in the country.
