International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman Shashank Manohar has stepped down after two, two-year tenures and until a successor is found deputy chairman Imran Khwaja will assume responsibilities.

The process for the Chairperson election is expected to be approved by the ICC Board next week.

“On behalf of the ICC Board and staff and the whole cricket family, I would like to thank Shashank for his leadership and everything he has done for the sport as ICC Chairman. We wish him and his family all the very best for the future,” said ICC chief executive Manu Sawhney.

ICC Deputy Chairman Imran Khwaja added: “Everyone on the ICC Board extends their wholehearted thanks to Shashank for the commitment he has shown to our sport. There is no doubt that cricket owes Shashank a debt of gratitude for all he has done for the sport. He has left cricket and the ICC in a better place than he found it.”
