A great platform to do something for cricket: Razzak
Bangladesh Cricket Board’s (BCB) selection panel has so far consisted of two members. Habibul Bashar Sumon was acting with chief selector Minhajul Abedin Nannu. Another former star, Abdur Razzak, has joined the selection panel along with the two former captains.
On Thursday (January 27), BCB announced Razzak as the new and third member of the selection panel. After announcing Razzak’s name at the end of the board meeting, Razzak became the focus of discussion in the country’s cricket. On the day of taking over the new responsibilities, Razzak said what his main purpose as selector will be and how he will complete the responsibilities.
The responsibility of the selector of the national team is quite heavy. In domestic cricket, as well as in all the top cricket in the country, one has to keep an eye on it. Lots of youngster get the focus every year because of them. The 38-year old former spinner knows the meaning of this responsibility.
“It’s a big responsibility,” he told BDCrictTime. “A great platform to do something for cricket. First of all, many thanks to the cricket board for choosing me. Then I will say, being able to stay with cricket is a big achievement for me. I have always wanted to be with cricket after leaving the game.”
Razzak said he, like the other two selectors on the panel, wants to carry out his duties with honesty and integrity. “As much as I have experience, I will try to share it with everyone. My intention will be one – to work honestly. Those who have been doing this job for so long are doing just that. I want to work in such a way that benefits Bangladesh cricket, Bangladesh,” the left-arm spinner said.
The main task of selecting a team before any series is done by the selectors, that’s why the performance of the players has been examined with full care. Razzak said he will try his best to examine the cricketers evaluating their performances.
“I can’t understand without seeing. If you don’t see it, you won’t know what’s happening, what’s going on. I will try to watch the matches as much as possible, do the work by looking at the current situation,” he concluded.
