How Shashank Manohar landed BCCI top job

Shashank Manohar has been formally elected the BCCI president on Sunday. The 58-year-old Nagpur lawyer begins his second stint as President after being designated to the post at the Special General Body meeting.

On September 20, Jagmohan Dalmiya breathed his last in Kolkata's hospital after a massive cardiac arrest, generating the battle for power at the BCCI. Even as names of contenders emerged ? Rajeev Shukla and Pawar seemed to be the frontrunners.

There were rumors that Jaitley was unhappy with Srinivasan's move to bring in Pawar and he decided to support Manohar. At a meeting in Delhi, Jaitley tried to convince Manohar to contest for the president's post.

After getting the signal from Pawar, Manohar agreed to stand for Presidency. Manohar had the support from the East Zone, Orissa, Tripura, and Andhra. Even Bengal and National Cricket Club were unofficially backing Manohar.

BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur had also made a confident proclamation, "Shashank Manohar is our consensus candidate. He is the only candidate for the BCCI president's post. N Srinivasan can come and vote at the SGM."

As Shashank Manohar is back in power at the BCCI, his main aim is to improve the image of the cricket board.
