On Tuesday, January 15, the International Cricket Council (ICC) appointed Manu Sawhney as a new chief executive officer. Sawhney previously served as managing director of ESPN Star Sports and CEO of Singapore Sports Hub. He is to begin to work at ICC in February.
The Council has approved the appointment after a lengthy search for a suitable candidate, carried out under the direction of the ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar and the nominations committee.
“It is a great privilege and responsibility to serve the global cricket community as CEO of the ICC. The sport has more than a billion fans and an ambitious growth strategy, so it is a very exciting time to lead the organisation,” Manu Sawhney said.
