“The resolution is a clear indication that while the Board may not yet agree on the detail of our reform process, we are committed to the overarching philosophies of it. We all believe that Shashank should be the man to see it through and while respectful of a decision made for personal reasons, we are delighted that he has agreed to remain in post until the completion of the 2017 Annual Conference where we can elect a successor,” said the Cricket Australia Chairman David Peever. Australia Cricket boss James Sutherland took a dig at Virat Kohli, saying he is not sure if the Indian captain knows how to spell the word “sorry.”
