The ICC Executive Board, following Shashank Manohar’s resignation, will appoint an acting chairman on April 26 at a meeting in Dubai.

This is as per rule 3.5(g) of the ICC constitution which states “in the event that the chairman shall, for any reason, be unable to fulfil or continue to fulfil his duties, then the Executive Board shall appoint an acting chairman from within the executive board to assume such duties until the conclusion of the next conference at which a new chairman is elected or, if sooner, upon the existing chairman being able to fulfil or continue to fulfil his duties.”
