The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah beat his boss on Wednesday as his team outclassed board president Sourav Ganguly's side by 28 runs in a friendly cricket match played at the Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Batting first, the Jay Shah XI posted 128 for 3 on the board in the 12-overs-per-side match with Jaydev Shah (38) and former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin (37) making significant contributions to the team's total.

Captain Jay Shah could only manage 2 runs from 6 balls before getting dismissed by his counterpart and BCCI president Ganguly. Former BCCI treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry hit an unbeaten 10 off 7 balls that included a six.

Sourav Ganguly XI in reply, were restricted to 100 for 4 in 12 overs with Ganguly's 32-ball 53 not out going in vain. Jay Shah failed with the bat but starred with the ball for his team as he bagged 2 wickets for 39 runs from 4 overs while Jaydev Shah also bagged one scalp. He could have had a third, but Ganguly's catch was dropped off his bowling.

The players from both teams were dressed in retro kits, the pictures of which went viral on social media.

The match was played at the renovated Motera Stadium, which is the largest cricket stadium in the world with a seating capacity of over 1,14,000. The stadium is yet to host any competitive game and will do so in February when England visit India.
