Update : 02 Sep 2015, 07:54 PM

More good news arrived for the country's disabled cricketers as Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hassan revealed that they have planned to introduce a separate wing for the sector. The BCB chief made the announcement on the opening day of the ICRC five-nation Twenty20 tournament at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium yesterday.

At the moment there are more than three disable teams being operated by different organisations and in order to provide the best facilities for the talented cricketers, the board is set to start a Disable Cricket Wing.

“Many organisations are involved with disable cricket at the moment. Some are working with blind cricket and others are working with disable cricket. But you will see that the players of all the teams are almost the same. The board has planned to open a separate wing for disable cricket,” said Nazmul.

Explaining the operation of the BCB Disable Cricket Wing, Nazmul said, “The job of this department will be to find out the talented disable cricketers from around the country and bring them under one roof. The BCB will try to provide the best possible facilities to those players and groom them to compete with disable teams from around the world. The team that are playing in the tournament at the moment has been chalked out by the BCB. The current disable team have been appointed with a coach. Soon we will look into the other necessities too.”

Bangladesh is currently hosting the ICRC Cricket Tournament for People with Physical Disabilities. India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and England are the participating teams in the unique multinational tournament alongside hosts Bangladesh.
