Shashank Manohar served multiple roles as a cricketing administrator and is a lawyer by profession. Shashank held the post of the BCCI President in a couple of tenures; first from 2008 to 2011 and second from November 2015 to May 2016.

Additionally, the Nagpur-born has kept the spot as the chairman of ICC since November 2015. On March 2017, he was reinstated until a chairman got elected.

N Srinivasan conceded that Manohar had deteriorated the image of Indian cricket at multiple levels. He hurt India’s finances, reputation with the ICC and mitigated their importance in world cricket. Srinivasan went on to state that he has quit now since he would not receive any support.

My personal view is he has done so much damage to Indian cricket that every person involved in Indian cricket will be happy (with his exit). He has hurt India’s finances in the game, has hurt India’s chances at the ICC, he has been anti-Indian and has reduced India’s importance in world cricket. He is running away now because he knows he will not get any bow from the Indian leadership. He has caused huge damage,” N Srinivasan said as quoted by Times of India.

The 75-year-old added that Manohar’s departure is a relief to Indian cricket and is glad to see his back. Srinivasan acknowledged that he would always run from a fight as he did in 2015 when the association struggled. He departed again when the ICC battles a worldwide pandemic.

His exit is a relief to Indian cricket. Manohar could never stick around for a fight. In 2015, he left BCCI in the middle of its worst crisis. Now, he’s leaving the ICC in the middle of a pandemic. Personally, I’m happy that such a person is no more with ICC,” the Chennai based Industrialist added.
