I know, I will be the best president in the history of BCB: Shakib
Cricketers usually like to stay with cricket even at the end of their playing career. Some like to be engaged with cricket board, some are coaches, some are commentators or analysts.
There is no end to the speculations about what will Bangladesh star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan do after retiring from cricket. However, Shakib wants to come in the role of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president.
There are many such instances in the cricket world in recent times that former cricketers involve in their respective cricket boards after retiring. India legend Sourav Ganguly is now the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), India’s governing body for cricket. South Africa’s Graeme Smith handles Cricket South Africa (CSA). Hamilton Masakadza has also risen to the top of Zimbabwe cricket.
Will Shakib follow their path? Such a question has been around for a long time. Finally, Shakib himself opened up about that. He said he would like to be the president of BCB if given the opportunity. Not only that, if he becomes the president, he is also confident that he will be the best president in the history of BCB.
“I think if I ever go to the post of BCB president, no one else in Bangladesh will be able to do what I will do. I would of course like to grab the opportunity to become a BCB president if I’m with cricket after retirement. I know, I will be the best president in the history of BCB. I believe very well, it is possible for me,” said Shakib during a live session with cricfrenzy.com.
