In that election, former cricketer Sazzad Ahmed Shipon earned his place in the selection committee of the national team from the age- based team.
After being selected, he worked as the third member in the selection committee for a year. As his tenure came to an end in this year, the BCB removed him from the selection committee and then he again started working for the age-based team.
’’I have started working again with the age-based team. We four selectors are here in this age-based team. I heard that one of us from here will join the national team. As Ehsanul Haque Sezan is the senior most selector so he should have been selected for the national team,” Shipon said.
On the contrary, it is been heard that BCB wants Minhazul Abedin and Habibul Bashar as the member of selection committee. The reason behind this is, head coach of national team Chandika Hathurusingha, team manager Khaled Mahmud Suzan and Akram Khan is also present in the selction committee.
Regarding this Akram Khan said, ”Now they have no wish to fulfill the vacant post in the selection committee. He added that there are still two selectors in the selection committee.’’
