Mr. Shashank Manohar has stepped down from his post as the president of the International Cricket Council (ICC), after four years of service.

Mr. Manohar was appointed as the head of the India Cricket institute in 2015 and was appointed as the president of the International Cricket Council in 2016. This appointment hit history making Mr. Manohar as the first independent president of the council.

Upon Manohar's resignation, Mr. Imran Kavarajah, who served as the vice president, has been appointed as the acting president. Kavarajah served as the former president of the Singapore Cricket institute and later as the vice president of the ICC in 2017.

Accordingly, Kavarajah is expected to serve in the acting president seat until a new president is elected.

Meanwhile, the ICC is set to elect the next president soon, as the queue is being overflown with many powerful figures in the field of Cricket. Kavarajah's name is topped among many famous Cricket figures such as Sourav Ganguly the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India and Colin Graves the chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board.
