Jay Shah gets big role in ICC

Jay Shah gets big role in ICC

The secretary of the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI), Mr Jay Shah, has been appointed as the Head of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Finance and Commercial Affairs (F&CA) committee. Although the news has not been officialized yet, it has been heard that Jay’s appointment will be made public in the upcoming ICC Annual Board Meeting.

Shah, who was re-appointed as the secretary of BCCI in the 91st Annual General Meeting, will take over Ross McCollum, who has handled the duties of Head of the ICC Finance and Commercial Affairs Committee. Notably, the committee makes the major financial policy decisions before the approval of ICC Board’s approval.

Shah has arrived in Australia along with the newly appointed chairman of the BCCI, Arun Dhumal. He will take part in the ICC Board meeting representing the Indian board, replacing former BCCI President Sourav Ganguly. Dhumal will be named a member of the chief executive’s committee. Many still wonder why not newly appointed President Roger Binny will be the meeting’s part.

“It is an honour to be re-elected as the Chair of the International Cricket Council and I would like to thank my fellow ICC Directors for their support.

Over the last two years, we have made significant strides forward with the launch of our global growth strategy that provides clear direction to build a successful and sustainable future for our sport,”
