BCB boss calls nat’l selection panel in impromptu meeting

Popular News

Bangladesh Cricket Board President Nazmul Hassan Papon on Friday called an impromptu meeting with the national selection panel to discuss Tigers’ recent failure in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup.

BCB chief selector Minhajul Abedin and selector Abdur Razzak were called by Nazmul at his residence in the evening.

It was learnt that the disastrous performance of the Bangladesh team in the ICC World T20 was discussed at length during the meeting. Bangladesh completed their Super 12 stage of the tournament with five successive losses and their below-par performance left the whole nation stunned considering they went into the tournament on a high after earning their maiden series win over Australia and New Zealand.

Daily Sun understands that the selection panel was asked by Nazmul not to do too much chopping from the previous squad while at the same time they were told to give exposure to one or two cricketers to see how they fare at the international level.

“We will be preparing the team shortly,” said a member of the selection panel adding that they are not willing to shut doors for senior members immediately despite all the hue and cry.
