Greg Barclay becomes ICC president, Jay Shah gets key to world cricket vault

Greg Barclay, Jay Shah

Jay Shah ICC: For the second time in a row, Greg Barclay has been elected without any opposition as the President of the International Cricket Council (ICC). The strong Control Board of Cricket in India (BCCI) is clearly a major contributor to selecting New Zealand for Barkley’s second term in a row. In such a situation, the ICC’s special intervention in the ICC had to happen, which it did. Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry Secretary Jay Shah has been elected to chair the powerful Financial and Commercial Affairs Committee of the International Chamber of Commerce. Let us tell you that Barclay’s term will be two years.

In addition to Barkley, Tawengwa Mukohlani of Zimbabwe was also in the race for his first presidential position, which later withdrew, leaving Barkley to be elected unopposed. Speaking of his reappointment, Barclay said, “It is a great honor to be re-elected to the International Cricket Council as Chamberman and I would like to thank my fellow ICC Directors for their support.”

Barclay was appointed ICC President in November 2020. He previously served as New Zealand Cricket Chamber and Director of the Men’s Cricket World Cup at the International Cricket Council in 2015. He was elected unopposed which means he also has the support of the BCCI on the 17-member Board of Directors. Jay Shah has been given the responsibility of chairing the most important committee of the International Criminal Court. This committee takes all major financial policy decisions and then approves them to the ICC Board of Directors.

“Every member has accepted Jay Shah as chair of the Finance and Trade Committee,” a source from the International Chamber of Commerce told PTI on condition of anonymity. Aside from the president of the ICC, it is an equally powerful subcommittee. The Finance and Trade Committee is always chaired by an ICC Board Member and Shah’s election makes it clear that he will represent ICC on the ICC Board of Directors.

The position of chairperson of this commission was with India during the reign of N Srinivasan, but the power of the BCCI was greatly diminished during Shashank Manohar’s tenure as President of the ICC. The former president of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Sourav Ganguly, was a member of this committee until last year.

India is the head of the global cricket business

An ICC source said, “India is the commercial hub of world cricket and more than 70 percent of sponsors come from this region. Therefore, it is imperative that the ICC Finance and Trade Committee always be chaired by the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
