The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday sacked its CEO, Manu Sawhney, four months after his alleged ‘abrasive conduct’ came under the scanner during an internal investigation. Earlier in March, ICC CEO Manu Sawhney was sent on ‘leave’ after he came under scrutiny for his ‘abrasive behaviour’ with his colleagues. The decision was taken by the ICC’s Board at an emergency meeting on Thursday, chaired by Greg Barclay, the ICC chairman.

The International Cricket Council announced that Chief Executive Manu Sawhney will leave the organisation with immediate effect. Geoff Allardice will continue as Acting CEO supported by the Leadership Team working closely with the ICC Board.
