The Bangladesh Cricket Board on Monday proposed a fresh amendment to its constitution to form regional cricket associations and made four separate working committees to start their work with immediate action.
The proposal was made in a BCB meeting held at a city hotel, making further breakthrough in much-talked about decentralisation of the game.
BCB president Nazmul Hasan said after the meeting that a pilot project would initially start in four divisions - Chittagong, Sylhet, Rangpur and Rajshahi – and the current board directors from respective regions would work as an advisor to the relevant committee.
‘We have made a constitution for regional cricket and the board has accepted the proposal today [Monday],’ Nazmul told reporters after the meeting.
‘We will now send it for legal advice and after their acceptance we will held an AGM to get it accepted completely. After that we’ll implement the provision,’ he added.
Nazmul revealed that the working committee from respective regions would work on facilitating and holding respective regional cricket leagues in their districts.
‘During the meantime, we will make the regional working committee and we start with Chittagong, Sylhet, Rangpur and Rajshahi.
‘The director of the respective region will work as the advisor of the respective committees. And they will make a committee along with the councillors of the districts,’ he added.
BCB has been talking about the regional cricket for a quite a long time and the current BCB committee had an agenda to make it happen during their election campaign last year.
