Abu Dhabi (Agencies): The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday announced to appoint Manu Sawhney as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).


Sawhney, the former CEO of Singapore Sports Hub and Managing Director of ESPN Star Sports, will join ICC next month before formally taking over the reins from David Richardson in July following the ICC Cricket World Cup, the governing body said in a press release.

The appointment was ratified by the ICC Board following a global search and appointment process led by ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar and the Nominations Committee.

“I am delighted to confirm Manu’s appointment today. He brings 22 years of outstanding commercial experience to the ICC and will lead the delivery of our new global growth strategy for the game. Our search produced a host of excellent candidates from around the world, but Manu stood out as the man to work with our Members and take cricket forward,” Manohar said.
