BCCI unhappy with Manohar, doesn't want him as ICC Chairman
The members of the BCCI are planning to oppose Shashank Manohar's re-election as the ICC Chairman. They are unhappy with certain decisions that Shashank Manohar presided over as the Chairman of the ICC, especially the one that led to decrease in BCCI's revenue share. The members are also against the ICC's proposal of converting the Champions Trophy into a T20 tournament.
Srinivasan led faction wants Manohar out
Several members led by former BCCI president N Srinivasan met last Saturday to review the BCCI-CoA rift. In the same meeting, the issue of Manohar's re-election was also discussed. Manohar's term, as the ICC Chairman, will come to an end in June 2018 and the members of BCCI have decided to oppose his re-election. Around 22 members attended this meeting in New Delhi.
ICC went through tough times under Manohar
Shashank Manohar's stint as the ICC chairman has not been a successful one. Under him, the international cricket boards' revenues have taken a hit. However, the last straw for BCCI was the proposal to convert the 2021 ICC Champions Trophy into a T20 tournament. The ICC believes a T20 tournament is much more marketable.
India will host the 2021 Champions Trophy
The Champions Trophy was an initiative by late BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya and the BCCI doesn't want ICC to tinker with it. As per media reports, the BCCI wants to pay a tribute to Dalmiya during the tournament. The BCCI has also planned to host the final of the tournament in Kolkata in honour of the late cricket administrator.
