“In last few days the confidence of cricket loving fans has shaken due to certain unpleasant things that have happened,” Manohar said at a press conference after his election.“But leaving them behind, it’s now duty of all board members to build the reputation of this board.” “We want to restore the faith of fans that cricket is clean,” Manohar said.

1.) Regulating conflict of interest issues: Appointment of an ombudsman or an ethics officer who would be independent of this board and who would look into the complaints as with regards to conflict of interest of the administrators, players or the staff. 2.) Preventing on-field corruption: He said, “We would like to meet the government officials to work out if we can get certain investigative agencies to work on this. Because the board doesn’t have any investigative powers… our hands are tied.” 3) Getting member associations' accounts in order: The board will appoint auditors to make sure that the huge money paid by the BCCI it is spent on cricketing activities or not otherwise. 4.) Making the BCCI's financial records public: The balance sheet of the board will be put on the website, with the result it will be available to the entire public at large so that there is transparency in the activities of the board. 5.) Developing the bench strength of the Indian team: Starting of National Cricket Academy (NCA) again. 6.) Reinvigorate Women's cricket


On 4 October 2015 he was elected as the new president of the BCCI unopposed in the special general meeting called by the board on Sunday. The decision was a mere formality as all six state associations from the East Zone, led by Cricket Association of Bengal's new chief Sourav Ganguly had nominated him to the chair.

Srinivasan was removed as the ICC Chairman on 9 November 2015 after the BCCI decided to recall him and nominate its recently elected President Shashank Manohar as the chief of the world body. The decision to remove Srinivasan was taken at the BCCI's 86th Annual General Meeting.


The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) called an emergent working committee meeting in Mumbai on Sunday, 20 April 2014, to decide its future course of action following the Supreme Court's order that forced Srinivasan to step aside as the cricket board's president. The meeting was called after several state associations wrote to the BCCI interim president (administration) Shivlal Yadav, demanding a discussion on the ongoing issues. Many state cricket association members think that only Shashank Manohar can restore cricket board's credibility. They wanted Manohar to lend his voice to their unhappiness at the meeting.

Manohar had said [in the April 2014 Working committee meeting] that Justice Mudgal who is completely unbiased and can effectively probe the scam with the help of CBI instead of the 3 members elected by Srinivasan's cronies.

On 22 April 2014 the Supreme Court of India endorsed Manohar's view and rejected BCCI's proposed panel to probe the IPL scam, asked Mudgal committee if it can help probe the scam with the help of CBI.

In April 2014 the Supreme Court of India appointed probe commission headed by (Retd) Justice Mukul Mudgal to investigate the betting and match fixing scandal in the IPL. The committee also included Additional Solicitor General L Nageswara Rao, advocate Nilay Datta, Deputy DG (Narcotics Control Bureau) BB Mishra, Vidushpat Singhania (Secretary) and the police departments in Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai to assist the investigation.

In November 2014 in response to the final submission of the Mudgal Committee Report, a special bench of the Supreme Court of India comprising justice TS Thakur and FM Kalifullah has named and issued notices to four key individuals including N Srinivasan and Gurunath Meiyappan in connection with the Mudgal report into the 2013 IPL spot-fixing case, which, the court observed, had suggested several "misdemeanours" by the duo.


Manohar lashed out at the players involved in the 2013 Indian Premier League spot-fixing and betting case and said that every match in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) should be investigated. It was widely speculated that he would be given the interim charge of the BCCI in the aftermath of the 2013 Indian Premier League spot-fixing case. But he refused to be the caretaker chief of BCCI, if N. Srinivasan continues in his role as the BCCI president. He had told BCCI vice-president Arun Jaitley in clear terms before 2June 2013 working committee meeting that he was "not interested" in taking charge of the Board on an ad-hoc basis because such an adhoc appointment is void as per the BCCI constitution. The BCCI constitution does not have a provision for Dual Presidency.

In June 2013 the Enforcement Directorate (ED) sent him a notice for adjudication issued against him over allegations of foreign exchange violations in the IPL tournament held in South Africa in 2009, for which he approached the Bombay High Court challenging the notice. His counsel told the Bombay High Court that Lalit Modi who was chairman IPL and vice-president BCCI during IPL in 2009 took all major decisions after approval from the BCCI committee. Modi could have received his first 'reprimand' from Manohar back in March 2010, but former India captain Sunil Gavaskar, then a member of the Governing Council, requested that the 'reprimand' not be recorded. Manohar had advised the IPL governing council to first take permission from RBI and only then open an account in South Africa. In response, the Bombay High Court quashed and set aside the notice issued by Enforcement Directorate (ED).

Manohar tore apart Srinivasan in an interview to the tabloid Mumbai Mirror on 3 October 2013. He said that as Srinivasan was responsible for the mess in BCCI, he shouldn't be BCCI president any more. He further said "Srinivasan has no right to continue as president. If you had the slightest of conscience, self-esteem and care for the board, you ought to have put in your papers the moment your son-in-law (Gurunath Meiyappan) was arrested [for betting in IPL. You did nothing and, as a result, the board's reputation has taken a hit to the extent that the people have lost faith in this board." He concluded by saying: "I left the board two years back and I have not entered its premises again. I have no intention to come back. I said if all the members want me, I will not shirk the responsibility. This board has given me a lot and I was willing to give something back."

Manohar was outvoted 14–1 at the meeting for the appointment of three-member inquiry panel. The working committee appointed Srinivasan's cronies to investigate his own wrongdoings in the board.


During his presidency India became the No 1 Test side & won the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup defeating Sri Lanka by 6 wickets in the final. In June 2010, he suspended Lalit Modi, who was chairman IPL and vice-president BCCI during IPL season 3, for his misdemeanors. Before being president of BCCI, he was President of Vidarbha Cricket Association.

According to sources, Manohar's candidature has been endorsed by Sharad Pawar as well as Arun Jaitley and his protege Anurag Thakur, the BCCI secretary. Manohar, who has a squeaky clean image and a no-nonsense approach to administration, soon emerged as the favourite. However, he has repeatedly refused to enter the poll fray after completing his term as BCCI president in 2011, given the mess in the board. Manohar changed his mind only after Arun Jaitley and Sharad Pawar both endorsed his candidature. With Rajiv Shukla too throwing his weight behind Manohar, the forthcoming SGM may not even see a contest.


Shashank Manohar's mother tongue is Marathi. He is equally fluent in Hindi and English. He is said to be an introvert bordering on the recluse. He didn't have a passport until 2007, and his first foreign trip was to Dubai to attend the ICC meeting in 2008.


Shashank Manohar married Varsha Oka in 1979. Their son Adwait Manohar is a lawyer in Nagpur and currently a Vice-President of Vidarbha Cricket Association.
