BCCI secretary Jay Shah’s tenure as president of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has been extended by one year. Shah had replaced Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan last January, making him the youngest administrator to be re-appointed as ACC president.
He wants to take the development of the sport in the region forward. “We will ensure that all-round development of cricket is done in the region. especially carrying forward the work in women’s cricked and the various grassroot tournaments the ACC conducts in the region in a year,” he said.
“The pandemic is hopefully over and now we can find innovate ways to help the ACC grow,” he added.
Shah’s extension was proposed by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) president Shammi Silva, which all the members of the ACC backed.
“I would like to thank everyone for believing in me,” Shah said. “I am committed to working hard to develop and promote cricket in the region.”
