International Cricket Council Chairman Shashank Manohar, who is also a prominent Indian lawyer, has served for governing body for over four years. He will step down from his post after his second-term ends later this year.
Shashank Manohar was elected as ICC’s chairman unanimously in 2016 but resigned from the post in March 2017. Subsequently, he was re-elected without any opposition in 2018. ICC confirmed that he has not sought an extension to his tenure but would remain the interim chairman till the new person is appointed.
So, as he vacant the post, there are speculations on who would be the successor of Manohar. Here we have listed three prominent candidates who could replace him from ICC’s Chairman’s post.
After initially taking over South Africa’s director of cricket on an interim basis late last year, Cricket South Africa (CSA) confirmed in April that Graeme Smith would be remaining in the role for two years. According to cricket pundits, his appointment can help the Proteas to build a brighter future.
The former captain, who scored 9,265 Test runs and a further 6,989 in ODI cricket, is a prominent figure in the cricket history. He is the most successful test captain in test history (53 test wins) and also the only captain to have registered 50+ test wins. His cricket knowledge and experience might make him the next possible ICC chairman.
