Bangladesh Sports Journalists Association (BSJA) handed over a token to former national cricket team captains to wish good luck for the Bangladesh team during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The token was jointly received by former Bangladesh captains Akram Khan, Naimur Rahman and Habibul Bashar on behalf of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) during an iftar party held by BSJA on Sunday.  

Alongside the association had also arranged a discussion forum on National Budget for Sports and Bangladesh in the cricket World Cup.  

The 15-member Bangladesh squad for the World Cup reached England on Saturday following their historic tri-nation ODI series win in Ireland on Friday. The tri-nation series involving West Indies and hosts Ireland was considered as a platform to prepare the Tigers for the mega ICC event.

“The team is full of confidence at the moment. They are eagerly waiting to perform well in the World Cup having won the tri-nation series. I hope the team will produce better result from that of the previous editions of the World Cup” said Naimur Rahman, Bangladesh’s first Test captain to the media.

Meanwhile Habibul Bashar said winning is a habit and the Tigers are in mood to maintain that.

“Winning is an addiction. Bangladesh are now in mood to perform and bag more wins. I hope Mashrafe [Mortaza] and the team will give us some good result,” said Habibul.

Bangladesh Olympic Association (BOA) Secretary General Syed Shahed Reza, BOA treasurer Kazi Rakibuddin Ahmed Chapal, General Secretary of Bangladesh Handball Federation Asaduzzaman Kohinoor were also present among others in the discussion.
