(REUTERS) – India’s Shashank Manohar has withdrawn his resignation as chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and will complete his term which ends in June next year, the governing body said yesterday.A lawyer by profession, Manohar had resigned in March citing personal reasons, having been elected unopposed on a two-year term as the ICC’s first independent chairman in May last year.After being persuaded by the ICC board, the 59-year-old later deferred his resignation, saying he will step down after the annual conference in June, when administrative reforms of the governing body would be complete.The International Cricket Council (ICC) today confirmed Shashank Manohar will continue to function as the Independent Chairman of ICC until the end of his elected term which is June 2018,” in a statement.Former Indian cricket board (BCCI) president Manohar has led the governing body’s move to reverse the 2014 decision which effectively put India, England and Australia in control of the game’s finances and administration.At last month’s meeting in its Dubai headquarters, the ICC board voted for a new financial model and governance structure to address the imbalance.The BCCI was the only board to oppose the new financial model and was one of the two that voted against a revised constitution, which will allow the ICC to include additional full members in the future. The decisions will have to be ratified at the ICC’s annual conference in June.
Earlier this week, a Reddit user pointed out that the NBA Store will not allow people to order a custom NBA jersey with “Free Hong Kong” on the back.Technically you’d need to enter “FreeHongKong” as “Free Hong Kong” (with spaces) exceeds the 12 character limit on customized jerseys. But the overall point was that it seemed as if the NBA was censoring the Hong Kong independence movement. This follows a discussion started by a tweet Rockets owner Daryl Morey sent last year, and a PR email sent by Sen. Josh Hawley last week. Of course – @NBA Incorporated doesn’t dare offend the paymasters in #Beijing! https://t.co/vRe8aspbln— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) July 13, 2020After a few hours of controversy, the NBA Shop eventually allowed “FreeHongKong” on custom jerseys. Sporting News reached out to Fanatics, the company that runs the NBA online shop, and the company said the initial ban was an error.”The phrase was inadvertently prohibited on our league online store sites and has now been fixed,” a Fanatics representative told Sporting News. “Fans who wish to customize it, so long as the text meets the 12-character limit, are able to do so.”The NBA as a league has not commented on the issue. Hawley argued that one of the approved social justice messages for players on the back of their jerseys should have been “Free Hong Kong.” So people decided to test what that would look like on the back of an NBA jersey, and realized you couldn’t put that message on a custom jersey in the NBA Shop.I bet the #NBA will allow you to put #freewoj on their custom t-shirts. But why won’t they allow #FreeHongKong????
