BCB extends help towards 76 low-income clubs
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has been on the side of the victims of the coronavirus from the very beginning. The country’s top cricket body has provided financial assistance to first-class cricketers, women cricketers and BCB employees.
The gift was handed over to the club authorities at the BCB office in Mirpur on Sunday (May 2). The BCB has provided special assistance to the office staff, team boys and other staff of a total of 76 cricket clubs, including 12 clubs in the Premier Cricket League, 20 clubs in the first division, 20 clubs in the second division and 24 clubs in the third division. However, it has been informed that the board has given it as gifts, not as help.
Ali Hossain, member secretary of the Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis (CCDM), said,
“The BCB president has sent gifts to the office staff, employees, team boys and massage men of a total of 76 clubs in Dhaka. 30 packets have been sent to each club. There are daily necessities including rice, pulses, flour, oil, onion, pepper and soap.”
He added, “Some materials have already been distributed from the BCB office. However, most clubs did not receive yet. In particular, the gift items of all the clubs in the Junior Division are deposited with the CCDM. It can be taken by any of the staff of the concerned club.”
