The ICC has revealed that Shashank Manohar will stay on as chairman just two months after he tendered his resignation.

There was uncertainty over who would lead the governing body when former Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Manohar resigned in March for personal reasons.

Manohar revealed he would quit only 10 months after he was elected, but the 59-year-old has had a change of heart.

The ICC on Wednesday announced that Manohar will stay on in the role until the end of his elected term, which is June 2018.

Manohar's decision to continue in his position comes just a fortnight after the ICC passed a revised financial model to reduce the power of the so-called "Big Three" cricket boards of India, England and Australia.

He said at the time: "This is another step forward for world cricket and I look forward to concluding the work at the Annual Conference.

"I am confident we can provide a strong foundation for the sport to grow and improve globally in the future through the adoption of the revised financial model and governance structure."
