“First of all, I am not aware that Liton is going to Pakistan today. I did not hear it. I just inquired about his update today. If he goes to Pakistan, then I was supposed to know it,” Papon told reporters today.
All eyes are on Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president as he was given the responsibility to determine who would become Bangladesh’s next ODI captain before August 12, the deadline day for the Asia Cup squad to be submitted.
Papon also said that Tamim is their World Cup captain. “Our World Cup captain is Tamim.”
"It's not easy for girls to play cricket in Bangladesh. You need wickets and pitches and equipment. Given the impediments girls have overcome to play cricket, we have not been able to do much for them. In a different place, they would get more facilities," Nazmul said bluntly
Sri Lankan Chandika Hathurusingha has left his post as assistant coach of New South Wales amidst suggestions that he will take on the head coach role of Bangladesh national team.
The administration and management of Bangladesh cricket at the hands of BCB is symptomatic of an unprofessional sport management system.
Following an AGM (Annual General Meeting) today, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) announced that the constitutional changes have been made to enact the Regional Cricket Associations (RCAs), a long unfulfilled promise of the current BCB president Nazmul Hassan Papon.
Usually, when a new Test captain is appointed, the first focus is on the direction he wants to take the team. But Bangladesh’s newly instated captain is yet to speak about his plans for the team or the brand of cricket he wants to see it play.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board said they have changed the date of the next Annual General Meeting (AGM) to July 19. The AGM’s main agenda will to approve the constitutional changes required to enact the Regional Cricket Association (RCAs). The AGM was initially scheduled to take place on July 26th but the date was changed as it clashed with ICC’s AGM on the same date.
