New Delhi. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Shashank Manohar quit from his post on Tuesday seven months after assuming his second term in the high-profile chair in October last year. He took over the position following the death of Jagmohan Dalmiya in September 2015. 

With Manohar's exit, Sharad Pawar is likely to emerge as the consensus candidate to take over the reins of the Indian cricket board, sources had told earlier.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) had last month decided that its chairman will be an independent one, who will be elected by a secret ballot in May and will not be allowed to hold any national or provincial position with any member board.

Lawyer-turned-administrator Manohar took over as BCCI president after he was declared elected unopposed at a Special General Meeting at the Cricket Centre in Mumbai last year.
