BCCI Secretary Jay Shah’s term as President of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) was unanimously extended on Saturday by a year until the 2024 ACC Annual General Meeting.

Shah had succeeded Nazmul Hassan, President of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), as President of the ACC in January last year, becoming the youngest administrator to be reappointed as ACC President.

Speaking to the AGM, Shah said the main focus of the ACC will be to advance the development of the sport in the region.

“We remain committed to ensuring the full development of cricket in the region, particularly the pioneering work in women’s cricket and the many grassroots tournaments that the ACC hosts throughout the year in the region,” said Shah.

“Hopefully the pandemic is behind us and I am very keen that we adapt, innovate and help the ACC go from strength to strength from now on,” he added.

Shah’s extension was proposed by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) President Shammi Silva and the nomination was unanimously supported by all members of the ACC.

“I would like to thank all my valued colleagues at the ACC for placing their trust in me and believing I am worthy to carry on all the work we have begun,” said Shah.

“I humbly accept this honor and pledge to work hard to organise, develop and promote our beloved sport of cricket in the region and help the ACC grow steadily in prominence,” he added.
