Today’s budding cricketers will turn out to be tomorrow’s Mashrafe bin Mortaza-Shakib al Hasan-Tamim Iqbal, said the chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on the Youth and Sports Ministry, Mohammad Zahid Ahsan Russel.
Saturday afternoon, the State Minister attended a prize-giving ceremony of the BSB Foundation School’s cricket tournament at Khan Jahan Ali Stadium in Fatullah, Narayanganj.

They mentioned that if more private organizations like BSB Foundation come forward to organize more events like this, Bangladesh cricket will go further.
In the final, Gazipur’s Agrani School defeated Dhaka’s Cambrian School to become champion.
Previously, BSB Foundation organized “BSB Foundation School Cricket 2019” on March 16, earlier this year.
