Silly. He is aiming for bigger job of ICC head. As per new rules you cannot have both jobs. So he is vacating till his ICC stint.

Happy for him, since ICC is probably higher visibility job globally.

Having said that, it's a big loss for Indian cricket fans because he did a LOT to clean up BCCI's act in the short time that he was at the helm.

If you remember, I used to criticize BCCI a lot earlier. But ever since Manohar took charge, I mellowed down because I could see he was genuinely trying to improve things.

Wish him all the best with ICC.

Hope the next guy who takes charge of BCCI continues the good work.

Don't be surprised, Ganguly might be that next guy
Ps: I don't want to see Sachin even as an office boy. Dravid would make a good administrator

I thought Manohar had resigned to take up higher honours in the ICC, but it seems to not be so.
He resigned because he didn't want to continue.
Apparently when he took the BCCI President role up on the death of Dalmiya, he had made it clear it would be a short-term assignment only.
And now, with all this Lodha Committee pressure, he doesn't seem to want to continue.

Most probably Anurag Thakur, currently BCCI secretary (and a BJP MP), will stand and get elected.
That would leave BCCI secratary position open. Rumours that Ganguly might get this.

That might just bring Shourey back to CF. :-)
