DUBAI: Manu Sawhney, the former managing director of ESPN Star Sports, has been appointed as the International Cricket Council’s new chief executive.

Indian-born Sawhney will join the ICC next month before formally taking over the reins from David Richardson, whose contract expires after the World Cup in the UK later this year.

Sawhney was the unanimous choice following a global recruitment process led by ICC chairman Shashank Manohar and the nominations committee.

“He brings 22 years of outstanding commercial experience to the ICC and will lead the delivery of our new global growth strategy for the game,” Manohar said in a statement.
