Jay Shah to head ICC’s finance committee

Melbourne, 12 November (agency)

New Zealand’s Greg Barclay was on Saturday unanimously elected chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC) for a second term. Apart from Barclay, BCCI (Cricket Board of India) secretary Jay Shah was elected to head the ICC’s all-powerful Finance and Commercial Affairs Committee at the board meeting. Barclay’s tenure will be two years. Barclay was elected unopposed after Zimbabwe’s Tawengwa Mukuhlani withdrew. The ICC Board reaffirmed its full support for Barclay.

Shah has been entrusted with the responsibility of chairing the most important committee of the ICC. This committee makes all major financial policy decisions, after which the ICC Board approves them. “Each member accepted Jay Shah as the head of this committee,” an ICC source said on condition of anonymity. Apart from the ICC chairman, it is an equally powerful sub-committee. The work of this committee includes revenue sharing among the member countries. The post of the head of this committee used to belong to India during N Srinivasan’s era, but the BCCI’s power was greatly reduced during Shashank Manohar’s tenure as ICC chairman.
