The much-awaited election of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) will be held in the first week of next month. Meanwhile, a meeting of officials has been called. The meeting will be held at the BCB office at 2 pm on Tuesday (September 21) at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur.
The term of the current committee of Bangladesh Cricket Board will end this month. According to the constitution of the BCB, elections must be held within 45 working days of the expiration of the term. However, the BCB will not take much time for the election. The board wants to hand over the responsibility to the new committee before the T20 World Cup. Therefore, the board wants to complete the election in the first week of October. The election process will begin immediately after today’s board meeting.
A five-member election commission has already been formed for the election. Former President of ICAB (Institute of Chartered Accountants of Bangladesh) M Farhad Hossain will be the Chief Election Commissioner. The other four members are former joint secretary to the Bangladesh government Mohammad Omar Farooq, BCB legal adviser Muddassir Hossain, Supreme Court advocate Mohammad Ekramul Haque and BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury Sujan.
