An election process would have been held at the ICC’s annual conference in June, but the organisation said it had received no eligible nominations to challenge Manohar, who twice served as president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

Following his re-election, Manohar, 60, said: “It is an honour to be re-elected as the chairman of the International Cricket Council and I would like to thank my fellow ICC Directors for their continued support. Together we have made big strides over the last two years, fulfilling promises I made to the sport when I was appointed in 2016.

“Over the next two years we can look forward to launching a global strategy for the sport in partnership with our Members so we can grow the game and ensure more of the world can enjoy cricket. The sport is in good health but we are the guardians of the game and we must continue to work hard to maintain that.”
