The Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA) has elected Jaydev Shah, son of former BCCI secretary and Saurashtra strongman Niranjan Shah, as its new president.
Shah was the former captain of Saurashtra Ranji team and led the team in 110 outings. Under Shah’s captaincy, Saurashtra was runner-Up in Ranji Trophy in the year 2012-13 and 2015-16 and was also the national champion in Vijay Hazare Trophy.
