Nazmul Hasan Re-Elected as Bangladesh Cricket Board President
Nazmul Hasan has been re-elected as Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president, thus becoming the first BCB supremo to serve a second term after the newly elected directors of the board unanimously elected him on Wednesday (November 1).
There were jubilant scenes at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, as more than 10,000 people turned up to celebrate Hasan’s win even before he was officially sworn in by the election commission.
“Nazmul Hasan is declared as the elected president of the newly-formed executive committee of BCB as there was no other candidate for the post,” Omar Faruk, the chief election commissioner, said.
Expressing his delight over the election result, Hasan said:
“I thank all of them who were behind me throughout this process.
“We will try to make it final by next six months,” said Nazmul. “The people from different part will have to come forward.”
“There is a possibility that we can make a final layout of it within three months and later call the EGM for approval. But first and foremost job is to talk with the people from different regions as they will know how to make it most effective,” he added.
Nazmul also said that he was not too keen for the role and was also ready to help if anyone else would have been in the running for the top post.
“I wanted to come from the club category and honestly did not want to continue as the president and was willing to help if there was someone else as president,” said Nazmul.
“It is a full-time job, and there is a challenge to adjust time as cricket is played nearly round the year so felt that others can come forward after completing four years tenure,” added Nazmul who is also a director of Beximco Group, a conglomerate holding company.
