Mumbai, Oct.4 (ANI): Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Secretary Anurag Thakur on Sunday said the Indian cricket will grow under the ‘able’ leadership of newly-elected president Shashank Manohar.
“With Shashank Manohar elected as the unanimous president of the BCCI, I am sure under his able leadership the cricket will grow with every passing day. He has been very openly talking about reforms and supporting them,” Thakur told a press conference here.
Earlier, Manohar was officially appointed unopposed as the new president of BCCI after getting the nod from all the six state associations from the East Zone.
The post had been left vacant after the death of Jagmohan Dalmiya following a heart attack last month.
Manohar had earlier served as the BCCI president from 2008 to 2011 before N. Srinivasan succeeded him. (ANI)
