Jay Shah’s Remarkable Comeback – ACC President Once Again

BCCI secretary Jay Shah has been again elected as the President of Asian Cricket Council (ACC). His term is extended by one year. 

It was also his 3rd back to back as the Presidentship. First time he was elected in 2021, when he replaced Nazmul Hassan who is the President of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). 

His name for the extension was proposed by the President of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) Board, Shammi Silva, which was supported by the remaining Asian Council members. SLC president said,

“Jay has played a pivotal role in steering the ACC towards significant progress in promoting and developing cricket across the Asian region. Under Mr Shah’s guidance, the Asian Cricket Council has been instrumental in unearthing and promoting new talent in cricketing power houses like India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.” 

Shah did a tremendous amount of hard work, promoting cricket in the Asian countries. Under his supervision he successfully held the Asia Cup (2023) and ODI World Cup (2023). After his extension, he said, 

“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.”
