Mani will chair the committee that will also include Indra Nooyi, Amitabh Choudhary, Chris Nenzani, Imran Khawaja, Earl Eddings, and Colin Graves. Manohar and Manu Sawhney will be the ex-officio members.
While Mani will chair the ICC F&CA for the second time, Dr. Nasim Ashraf is the only other PCB Chairman to have headed an ICC committee. He led the HR and Remuneration Committee in 2008.
Upon his appointment, Mani said: “I am grateful to the ICC chairman for the confidence he has reposed in me and look forward to working with Manu Sawhney and his team.”
Mani – who became the PCB’s permanent representative at the ICC in 1989, ICC Vice-President in 2002 and ICC President from 2003-2006 – has also been included in the ICC Audit Committee, which will be chaired by India’s Yuvraj Narayan.
In an another ICC appointment, PCB General Counsel, Barrister Salman Naseer, has been included in the ICC’s Safeguarding Panel.
The panel, which will be headed by Kate Gallafent has been set-up to ensure implementation of the ICC Safeguarding Regulations and protection of the welfare of any person engaged in activities in connection with an ICC event.
