The decision was reached following discussions between representatives from the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) and the JCA regarding a potential memorandum of understanding (MoU) aimed at enhancing cricket development in Japan. Shammi Silva, an Executive Board member and Chairman of the Finance and Marketing Committee of ACC, held discussions with Alex-San and Ashley De Silva, CEO of SLC, in the presence of Priyantha Kariyapperuma, Special Adviser to the JCA and Goodwill Ambassador, who facilitated the meeting.

In addition to this development, it has been revealed that the ACC will undergo a change in presidency in 2025, with Jay Shah’s tenure coming to an end. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is set to assume the presidency of the ACC for a two-year term following this transition.

This decision was made during a meeting in Bali, Indonesia, where Pakistan was represented by the Acting Chairman of the PCB and Chief Election Commissioner Shah Khawar, along with Chief Operating Officer (COO) Salman Naseer. Sri Lanka Cricket, which was next in line for the presidency after Bangladesh, voluntarily extended Jay Shah’s term for another year. The member countries unanimously supported this decision, paving the way for the PCB to take over the ACC presidency after Jay Shah’s tenure concludes.

It is noteworthy that the meeting did not address the upcoming edition of the Asia Cup. The leadership change in the ACC and the inclusion of the JCA as a member highlight the growing significance of cricket in the Asian region and the efforts to expand its reach to new territories.

This development is expected to further boost cricket’s popularity in Japan and provide opportunities for the country’s cricketing talent to showcase their skills on the international stage.
