Govt mulls 4 international stadiums

State Minister for Ministry of Youth and Sports Zahid Ahsan Russel today informed the parliament that the government has a plan to build four international stadiums in the country.

New international stadiums will be built in Cox's Bazar, Cumilla, Manikganj and Gazipur districts, Zahid Ahsan said while answering a lawmaker's query.

The state minister's answer was tabled at the beginning of the day's sitting in the House.

"Project has been taken to have feasibility test to build stadiums at Cox's Bazar, Cumilla, Manikganj," Zahid Ahsan said.

Currently, there is no possibility of arranging any international cricket match at Shaheed Chandu Stadium, Bogura according to the International Cricket Council (ICC) schedule, the state minister said while replying to query of another MP.

BNP lawmaker Gulam Mohammad Siraj said that Shaheed Chandu Stadium got international status in 2003 and the venue hosted a Test and five one day international cricket matches in 2006. Since then no international match was hosted there, he said.
