Former BCCI secretary, Niranjan Shah on Tuesday welcomed Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s election as the Gujarat Cricket Association President and hoped that cricket in the state will benefit by this development.

Talking to mediapersons in Rajkot, Shah who is the secretary of the Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA), said, “I welcome his election as president of GCA and I heartily congratulate him”.

“Mr Modi has been Chief Minister of the state and after becoming president of GCA I believe that cricket in the state will be encouraged further,” he said.

The state has three different associations affiliated to the Cricket Board - Saurashtra CA, Baroda CA and Gujarat CA - and all three associations would benefit following Modi becoming president of one of the associations, he said.

He also expressed the hope that Modi would now promote the game of cricket and its infrastructure in the state.
