Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is going to inaugurate the new stadium in Cox’s Bazar which is built according to the preparation of venues for the Women’s T20 World Cup 2014– informed BCB President Mr. Nazmul Hassan Papon on Monday. The stadium is named Sheikh Kamal International Cricket Stadium.
He also said, “Now we have only constructed a cricket stadium in front of the Women’s World cup. But there will be a cricket complex here also and many more.”
The owner of the place where BCB wants to build the permanent field and complex is the Tourism Ministry. But BCB president said, “Now we have no complications with them. But there are some issues here which need to be solved. Earlier we do not have any opportunities to deal with those issues during the construction period. But we are now hoping that there will be no further problems concerning those matters.”
“If they will be able to provide us any satisfactory places to build the permanent field and the complex after the world cup then we will consider to shift this”- he added.
BCB President said that Prime Minister asked to build the stadium right here so there are no chances to deviate from that and the ministry have to deal it with the prime minister’s office.
He said, “We are trying to finish the necessary construction work for the upcoming world cup. If we will be able to do that accordingly and receive the permission of ICC then matches will surely be held here. And after the world cup the matches of the domestic league will also occur. We are in shortage of playing grounds. If there is a new stadium it is definitely used.”
