Shah, who also holds the position of secretary at the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), first assumed the ACC presidency in 2021 after succeeding Nazmul Hassan.

“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,” Shah stated after his re-election.

Under his leadership, Shah, who became the youngest ACC president at the age of 32, has overseen various initiatives aimed at promoting cricket across Asia. Despite facing challenges like the COVID-19 pandemic, he ensured the smooth conduct of the men’s Asia Cup in 2022, held in the UAE due to Sri Lanka’s financial crisis.

Looking ahead, Shah expressed his gratitude for the continued trust placed in him by the ACC Board and emphasized the importance of fostering cricket’s growth, especially in regions where it’s still in its early stages. Despite criticism for certain decisions, such as the implementation of a hybrid format for the men’s Asia Cup 2023, Shah remains committed to advancing the sport across the continent.
