The ‘ICC Annual Conference Week’ has started in London on Monday (June 19), which will come to an end with the annual meeting on July 23. In order to take part in the Annual Conference Week, BCB President Nazmul Hasan Papon and CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury are now in London.
Bangladesh have some big interest in this meetings. Bangladesh are currently due to get 76 million dollars from the ICC in next 8 years.
But if a new proposal is passed, which is highly likely, Bangladesh will then receive 132 million dollars instead. This means every year Bangladesh will get 7 million dollars more than what they were initially supposed to get.
However, this will happen only if the proposal is passed by the ICC. And according to reports coming from London, the proposal will eventually be passed for sure, but it will still take some more time than expected. It is likely to be finalized during the general assembly of the ICC.
Apart from this, talks regarding future mutual tours between the countries are likely to be held in the conference, while a final decision as to whether or not Ireland and Afghanistan can be the next two nations to acquire Test status will also be taken in this conference.
