The Bangladesh Cricket Board Tuesday donated 21 sports wheelchairs to the disabled cricket team. 

Following request from the Center for Research and Information, the BCB sourced the chairs from abroad and board president Nazmul Hasan handed it to the disabled cricketers at the BCB head office at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka.

Bangladesh disabled cricket team captain Mohammad Mohsin expressed elation with the support extended by the BCB.

“We have till date played with ordinary wheelchairs. Running between the wickets used to be a challenge for us as the ordinary chairs are heavy and slow. It was not possible for us to take more than a single. Sports wheelchairs are quick,” said Mohsin to the media.

“I am thankful to the BCB and CRI for coming to our support,” the Bangladesh skipper added.

Bangladesh disabled cricket team are scheduled to travel to India on December 16 for a four-nation tournament. 

Bangladesh will face Nepal, Afghanistan and host India in the tournament scheduled to take place in Uttarakhand from December 20-25.
