Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah was appointed as the president of the Asian Cricket Council for a third consecutive term. Jay's extension was proposed by the Sri Lanka Cricket president Shammi Silva for the second time and the nomination was unanimously backed by all the members of the ACC at its annual general meeting in Bali.
Jay initially assumed the role in January 2021, succeeding Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hassan. Under Jay’s leadership, the ACC successfully organised the Asia Cup in T20 format in 2022 and in ODI format in 2023.
“I am grateful to the ACC Board for their continued trust. We must remain committed to ensuring the all-round development of the sport with a special focus on regions where it is still in its infancy. The ACC is committed to nurturing cricket across Asia,” Jay said in a statement.
“Under Jay’s guidance, the ACC has been instrumental in unearthing and promoting new talent in cricketing powerhouses like Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka,” Silva said. Pankaj Khimji, chairman of Oman Cricket and vice-president of the ACC, also extended congratulations.
