Former BCCI president Sourav Ganguly will remain the chairman of the ICC Men's Cricket Committee, while BCCI secretary Jay Shah was elected as the head of ICC's Finance and Commercial Affairs (F&CA) committee. The above two appointments were revealed in the latest ICC board meeting. 

Meanwhile, New Zealand's Greg Barclay was unanimously re-elected chairman of the International Cricket Council for a two-year term. Barclay was unopposed following the withdrawal of Zimbabwe's Tavengwa Mukuhlani from the process, and the ICC Board confirmed his support to Barclay to continue at the helm. 

"It an honor 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," said Barclay on his re-appointment.


According to a report published in PTI, an ICC source claimed that Jay Shah will be responsible for all the major financial policy decisions as the F&CA is an equally powerful sub-committee apart from the ICC chair.

Speaking of Ganguly, the former Indian skipper was recently replaced by World cup-winning player Roger Binny at the helm of BCCI and speculations were doing the rounds that the former India captain might throw his hat for ICC Chair's role but the lack of support from members spoiled Ganguly's hope.

A PTI report confirmed that Sourav Ganguly was informed that there is no precedence of giving a second term to the board president. Meanwhile, Ganguly also confirmed the fact that he will be back at the football club ATK Mohun Bagan as the director. 

"I was part of ATK, and I will be back as the director. I have spent more than nine years in this club during my early cricketing days."

Ganguly, who has been associated with the Indian Super League club, – owned by Sanjiv Goenka since 2014 – had stepped down from its board last year.
