He relocated the Men’s Asia Cup 2022 to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in light of the financial crisis faced by original hosts Sri Lanka.

“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.
