In Arunachal Pradesh, he met the state’s Chief Minister Pema Khandu along with Union Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju and had a fruitful discussion on the promotion of the game in the state.
Sikkim’s Chief Minister PS Golay said Shah assured him that the BCCI would set up a National Cricket Academy in the state.
Before the northeastern states started out in the Ranji Trophy and other domestic competitions in 2018, the BCCI had set up a task force for the development of the game in the region.
