Adverse reports of his management style have emerged in an internal culture review of the body

Manu Sawhney, the ICC chief executive, has been asked to go on leave after adverse findings of his management style emerged in an internal culture review of the sport’s governing body.

Sawhney was appointed to the position in January 2019, succeeding David Richardson after a seven-year stint, and took charge formally in April that year. He has since overseen a turbulent period in which he was one of the lead figures in an ongoing background battle within the global body between two different visions of the future of the game.

The review was commissioned late in February and carried out by PriceWaterHouseCoopers, and ultimately based its findings on the opinions of 85 employees and ex-employees of the ICC.
