BCB boss Papon hints retirement

Bangladesh Cricket Board chief Nazmul Hassan Papon said on Wednesday that he is planning to leave his post from BCB. The BCB president talked to the media after paying homage to his late mother Begum Ivy Rahman, who was Awami League’s Women Affairs Secretary and late President Zillur Rahman’s wife.


A discussion and remembrance programme on former Bangladesh Mohila Samity President late Begum Ivy Rahman was held at the Bangladesh Mohila Samity yesterday.


During a brief session with media, Papon said: “I don’t want to continue as BCB President anymore.”


When asked why he is thinking of leaving BCB as Bangladesh cricketers are passing through a great time he replied briefly.


“Actually, I am in charge of few important roles.

For this reason, I think that I am not delivering my 100 percent to my duties. That’s why I intend to take discharge from BCB’s responsibilities.”


Earlier, there was rumour that Papon will be no longer BCB President. After his yesterday’s statement there is another talk in the air that he might join International Cricket Council (ICC) as Vice-President.


Nazmul Hassan is currently in charge of three important roles in three different sectors. Beside his post as BCB President, he is also the Member of Parliament of Kishoreganj-6 and Managing Director of Beximco Pharmaceutical Limited.
