Just before the Eid-ul-Azha, the Bangladesh cricket team has presented the nation with probably the biggest joy it could expect of. The Tigers have once again created history and cemented their position in the cricket world when they beat Australia in a Test match for the first time ever on Wednesday.[নিউজটি বাংলায় পড়ুনঃ ৬ কোটি টাকা পুরস্কার পাচ্ছেন ক্রিকেটাররা]
Thanks to Shakib Al Hasan’s heroics (89 runs and 10 wickets), Bangladesh have handed the visiting Aussies a remarkable defeat by 20 runs, and went 1-0 up in the two-match Test series.
Now the cricketers are also on the verge of getting their rewards of making such a brilliant result. The president of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), Nazmul Hasan Papon has announced a bonus of BDT 6 crore for the Tigers.
Papon has confirmed the news on Wednesday afternoon while talking to the newsmen. He has also informed that apart from the players of the Test squad, Bangladesh ODI skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza will also be one of the recipients of the bonus.
This is because BDT 4 crore of the announced 6 crore are for Bangladesh’s qualification in the semifinals of this year’s ICC Champions Trophy in England and Wales. And Mashrafe was the leader of that squad.
Papon said, “We have received 4 crore from the ICC. With that, we will also add 2 crore, and divide the total money among the cricketers within tomorrow.”
Not only for the cricketers, but the BCB has also announced Eid bonus for all of its officials, and even the groundsmen as well.
