Shakib 'has a severe attitude problem'

The year 2014 for Bangladesh cricket so far, both on and off the field, has been shrouded in darkness. Yesterday's decision by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to impose a six-month ban on all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has added another chapter to Bangladesh's bad run.

Verdict delay irks BCB boss

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan Papon expressed his disappointment over the tribunal's delay in submitting the detailed verdict regarding fixing allegations in the second season of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). While a short-verdict -- submitted by the three-member tribunal in February -- found Dhaka Gladiators' co-owner Shihab Chowdhury guilty and discharged six others as not guilty, Papon and the ICC are in pursuit of the complete verdict, which will explain the reasons behind the decisions. “I am very...

Papon may not name coach's name today

As promised by Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan Papon three days ago, the name of the new head coach for the Tigers is supposed to be disclosed today.

It's now all but confirmed that the BCB has reached...

BCB more than happy with $20.025 million

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) was highly satisfied with the 20.025-million-dollar price fetched by the sale of their worldwide media rights for six years to local satellite channel Gazi TV. Gazi TV won the rights in an open bid yesterday and offered slightly more than the floor price of 20 million dollars -- an amount which made the BCB high-ups more than happy. It is the major source of income for the country's richest sports body. “The open bidding was in...

Papon's no to local coach

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan Papon yesterday snubbed those who are advocating for a local head coach as an immediate replacement of Tigers' outgoing Australian coach Shane Jungensen. “At this point of time, I am giving the preference to a foreign coach. And in the future hopefully we will have a local coach attached to a foreign coach, this is what we hope,” Papon said while responding to an obvious question; who will take the charge of the...

BCB's time to right the wrong

While a number of issues will be on the agenda at the Bangladesh Cricket Board's headquarters in the board meeting today afternoon, none will top the discussion between BCB president Nazmul Hassan Papon and coach Shane Jurgensen regarding the latter's resignation. The president is scheduled to meet Jurgensen at 11:30 before going on to meet his board of directors.

The coaching conundrum

The coaching conundrum

The event by itself -- Shane Jurgensen's tenure as Bangladesh coach coming to an end with around a year left on his contract -- is not surprising. What is a bit of a surprise, however, is that despite Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan Papon hinting at 'wholesale changes' in the aftermath...
