Shah will be replacing Bangladesh Cricket Board chief Nazmul Hasan in the top job of the continental body.  I’m sure ACC will achieve greater heights under your leadership and the cricketers of the entire Asian region will benefit,” wrote BCCI Treasurer Arun Dhumal.

 

With BCCI President Sourav Ganguly currently in hospital after undergoing a successful angioplasty, Jay has been working overtime to decide on the fate of the domestic calendar in Indian cricket.

 

Bangladesh Cricket Board’s (BCB) chief Nazmul Hussain was the previous chief of the ACC and now Jay Shah has taken over the role. The ACC is Asia’s regional administrative body and it consists of 24 member associations.

 

BCCI Secretary Jay in his letter to the state associations, accessed by ANI, informed them that the decision was taken with an eye on the coronavirus pandemic and the feedback of the state bodies.
