    BCB chief asks team managers to file reports

    bcbBangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Nazmul Hassan Papon has directed the Bangladesh team managers to submit reports on the poor performance of the team in the ICC World Twenty20 cricket tournament.

    He also stressed the need for bringing some changes to the Bangladesh team as he focused on a long term plan.
    “That doesn’t mean that only the players will be changed, change should be made in team management as well,” he said while talking to journalists after an emergency meeting of BCB directors yesterday.
    The BCB boss said the managers were asked to submit their report within a week, and the BCB would determine the next course of action after getting the reports.
    “We need a long term plan and at the same time we need to keep in mind that the 2015 world cup is knocking at the door. So we’ve to take a number of steps simultaneously,” he said.
    “At the moment I think we need some new players who would be able to plug the weak spots of the team.”
    bdnews24.com adds: Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has violated Bangladesh Cricket Board’s (BCB) code of conduct that barred cricketers from speaking to the public/local media during the World Twenty20.
    The board has demanded of him an official explanation of his action. BCB will announce its action concerning Shakib’s misdemeanour after he gives his explanation.
    “We’ve asked him to submit a letter immediately…demanded explanation. According to our rules during the tournament no player is supposed to offer personal interviews without team manager’s permission,” BCB President Nazmul Hassan said.
    “Whose permission did he take, why did he give it? As far as we know this is a breach of the BCB’s code of conduct,” he added. “We have sought his explanation on something he had said. Today is the last day for him to reply to the show cause notice. After this, the matter will be under prosecution following which we will decide on our next course of action,” said the BCB chief.
    Although Hassan thinks Shakib has breached BCB rules, he was reluctant to discuss the likely punishment. “What his punishment will be cannot be discussed now. I don’t think it is right to discuss it before we receive his reply.” The BCB president has not only demanded Shakib’s explanation on the matter but has also sought the view of Akram Khan, who is the manager of Bangladesh team, on the matter.
    “I want to know what they think; whether they think this is right. If it is wrong, what should be done about it? Team manager is a sort of director, so I’ve asked for his opinion as well.” Hassan hopes to settle the matter within the next week. “I hope that the disciplinary committee will compile their recommendation within four to five days after getting Shakib’s response. After returning (from the ICC conference), I will call a board meeting and take decision within a day or two. I hope the matter will be resolved within a week.

    HC dismisses rule on dialogue – Fore

    The bench of Justice Naima Haider and Justice Zafar Ahmed annulled the rule on Tuesday and said it was now ‘ineffective’.

    The High Court had on Mar 27 last year asked why ruling Awami League President Sheikh Hasina and then Opposition BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia would not be ordered to start a dialogue to ensure a free and fair national election. The rules had also asked to know why the home secretary should not be directed to take measures to stop ‘illegal activities’ like hurling bombs, arson attacks and vandalism in the name of political activities.

    Supreme Court lawyer Md Yunus Ali Akhand had filed the petition on Mar 14 that year.

    Akhand himself conducted the hearing while Additional Attorney General MK Rahman argued for the state.

    Barrister Nazmul Huda also argued in the hearing on behalf of the petitioner.

    After the annulment of the rule, Akhand said, “The court has said the situation of the country is now quiet. The situation is not the similar to the time when the rule was issued. Khaleda Zia is also no more the Opposition leader.

    “So the rule has now become ineffective. That’s why it has been annulled,” he said.

    Akhand said the situation might change after the Upazila polls and SSC tests if a dialogue was not held.

    “For that we want a dialogue,” the lawyer said.
