Shashank Manohar Is The New Chief Of BCCI Replacing Dalmiya

New Delhi, October 5: Shashank Manohar was unanimously elected as the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to replace Jagmohan Dalmiya, who died two weeks back in Kolkata on Sunday.

Manohar, who is being elected as BCCI president for the second time, vowed to regain the Board's lost reputation.

"I have to continue the good work, which was being done by Mr Jagmohan Dalmiya... unfortunately, he could not carry them out and I propose to take things forward," he said.

Manohar said that the Board would frame regulations on conflict of interest of administrators, players and the staff. He also set a deadline of one month for doing it.

An ethics officer to look into complaints of conflict of interest will be appointed, he added. To avoid a repeat of a IPL 2013-like spot-fixing, the Board will lay down norms and educate players, he said.

The Board will also keep a tab on how state association utilise their annual grant of Rs 25-35 crore by appointing an independent auditor. The Board's constitution, balance sheet and expenditure of over Rs 25 lakh will be uploaded on the official website to keep things transparent. He vowed to make all old records and documents available at the Cricket Centre in Mumbai.
