Manohar had come under intense criticism from former BCCI chief Anurag Thakur for not supporting India. BCCI was not happy with him for backing out of the Big Three rules, which allowed India, England and Australia to get a lion’s share of the ICC’s money because these three countries contributed more to the sport’s cause.

“You need to understand one thing, how the ICC constitution got changed. Amendments were made. That time Mr Manohar was on the board. He made certain changes and amendments. As a president of the board, he should have taken into confidence all the members of BCCI. The amendments were made and he became the independent chairman (of ICC). Once he became the independent chairman, he left the BCCI when it needed him the most,” Thakur had said when the ICC backed the Lodha Panel’s reforms.
