Jay Shah takes over as Asian Cricket Council President

Jay Shah has taken over as the president of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC), replacing Nazmul Hasan of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) in the top job of the continental body. The position is rotated among the full members of the Asian boards every two years.

Usually, the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) takes over as the head of the ACC, but in this case, it is the secretary of the BCCI taking over the position.

Arun Singh Dhumal, the BCCI treasurer, confirmed the news to Cricbuzz.

Ehsan Mani, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, told Cricbuzz, "It is a smooth transition in the ACC. It is the turn of the BCCI and it is their prerogative to have whoever it wishes as the ACC president. My best wishes to him."

One of the biggest challenges before Shah would be to conduct the Asia Cup, a tournament which has serious diplomatic contours because of the participation of traditional rivals, India and Pakistan. The 2020 edition of the tournament could not take place due to the pandemic and has been postponed to June 2021.
