BCB President Nazmul Hasan

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is going to get a big shock as President Nazmul Hasan will resign from the post after being made the Sports Minister after the victory in the general elections. He has been the BCB president since 2012 and won the election held on January 7. Four days later, on January 11, he was given the post of Youth and Sports Minister.

Therefore, speculations about his departure from his current post have intensified. There are concerns over his handling of both responsibilities, being the BCB chief since 2012 and now playing a government role. Meanwhile, while talking to journalists, Hasan said that he can continue on both the posts.

According to Cricbuzz, addressing these speculations, Hasan said, there is no legal problem with my holding both the posts (BCB President and Youth and Sports Minister). There is no connection between getting the ministry and BCB stepping down from the post, as there were many ministers earlier too who held the roles. This is the case in foreign countries too and hence it is not an issue.

However, despite legal immunity, Hasan stated his preference to avoid conflict of interest, but it would be better if this were not the case (to hold both positions). Then things can be said about me that I will give priority to cricket. I (being the Sports Minister) want to give priority to everything.

Citing the importance of the stability of cricket in the country, he said he was committed to completing his current term as BCB president. He also said that once his tenure ends, he will discuss the matter with the International Cricket Council (ICC) regarding options.
