A BATTING WITH BIMAL BREAKING REPORT: Nazmul Hassan named as new BCB president

Hassan ensured that he is committed to improving cricketing standards in Bangladesh

The Bangladesh government have appointed Nazmul Hassan, a member of parliament, as the new president of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).

Hassan will replace Mustafa Kamal, who had to step down from the post after being elected as the new International Cricket Council (ICC) vice-president.

Hassan is the son of Bangladesh president Zillur Rahman, and is the managing director of one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the country, and to add to that, he is also the chairman of the cricket committee for Abahani sports club.

According to the current BCB rules, the president of the board will be chosen by the government, but recently, the board handed in an amended constitution to the National Sports Council in hopes that they will be able to freely elect the new head of the BCB instead of having the government choose it for them.

Hsassan has a lot of unfinished business to take care of, starting with the umpire corruption scandal.

He will also have to ensure that a separate tournament is created for franchises that chose to run first-class teams and sign with the BCB, while also handling the matter of signing long-term broadcasting rights since deals have only been signed for one series.
