Afghanistan, Bangladesh, England, India and Pakistan will battle from August 5-15

A 16-member Bangladesh physically challenged cricket team will reach England Friday to take part in a five-nation physical disability world series, organized by the England and Wales Cricket Board. 

Afghanistan, Bangladesh, England, India and Pakistan will battle from August 5-15, whilst mobilizing support for the cricketers with disabilities who continue to defy odds and physical challenges to play cricket. The International Committee of the Red Cross is sponsoring the team, while the BCB has been extending its technical support since the team’s formation.

While Drupam Patranabish is the captain and Masud Hasan remains the team manager, Rashed Iqbal will coach the team. 

Currently, active training camps are underway at Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protishthan for the BCB physically challenged cricketers to be able to represent Bangladesh in the upcoming World Series. 

Earlier in April this year, a 10-over friendship match was held in Dhaka between national cricketers with disabilities to raise awareness for people with physical disabilities in continuation of ICRC’s endeavor to promote social inclusion through cricket.

Squad

Mohammad Rasel Sikder, Mohammad Manir Hossain, Mohammad Kazol Hossen, Mohammad Monirujjaman, Mohammad Alam Khan, Mohammad Javed Vuian, Akbar Hossain, Mohammad Imran Mahfuzur Rahman, SM Shaharia Shamim (WK), Drupam Patranabish (Captain), Shariful Islam, Apurba Kumar Paul, Tanvirul Islam, Mohammad Jahid Hasan and Mohammad Mahbubul Alam
