The Bangladesh cricket icon is among the 10 South Asians who have also been named in the list

Former Bangladesh cricket captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza has been named as the Young Global Leader for 2021, among 112 other individuals. 

The World Economic Forum published the list of the young leaders on Wednesday.

Mashrafe, also a member of parliament from Narail 2 constituency, is also among the 10 South Asians who have also been selected in the list of the Young Global Leaders.

Each year, the Forum of Young Global Leaders goes through a rigorous selection process to identify, select and commemorate remarkable leaders under 40 who come from different communities and industries worldwide.

These young leaders exemplify what people need most today: hope, empathy, authenticity, and the drive to develop solutions that can change the world for the better.

According to the Forum of Young Global Leaders, aside from cricket, Mashrafe has also played a significant role in helping people move out of the poverty trap in his hometown of Narail in southwestern Bangladesh.

He launched the Narail Express Foundation, which looks to achieve six goals: offer modern facilities for citizens and a specialized education system, help start an ethical and humane education system, create employment opportunities, increase cultural activities, provide sports training, to set up a tourism hub around Chitra River, and transform Narail into an information and communications technology (ICT) and environmentally friendly town.
