Ebadat Hossain became the fastest bowler of the Robi Fast Bowler Hunt-2016 campaign as he produced a record bowling speed of 139 km/h amongst 14,512 men’s contenders in the trial campaign which ended at BCB National Cricket Academy ground in the capital yesterday.
The lanky fast-bowler, who hailed from Barlekha, Moulvibazar but registered his name at Faridpur venue, hogged the limelight with the bowling speed of 133km/h. Henceforth, this Airman snatched the speedster title overwhelming his rivals in the stiff hurdle of the three tier competition, jointly organised by Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and Robi Axiata Limited.
“I’ve tried my utmost best and feel quite well to be succeeded in my attempts. I think if I alongside other bowlers could do our training under the BCB High Performance (HP) programme, then we could do show better performance in future,” said Ebadat Hossain, who bagged the first prize of Tk50,000 alongside Tk 30,000 with crest and certificate.
Sultan Hossain, who came from Sylhet, captured the title of the most swing (variation) bowler and the identical amount of prize money, crest and certificate.
Chittagong-born lad Mujibur Rahman, who took part in this talent hunt programme at Cox’s Bazar venue, earned the title of the most consistent bowler and also claimed the same amount of prize money, crest and certificate.
Besides them, Imran Ali Emon, Noor Alam Saddam, Yeasir Arafat Mishu, Syed Khaled Ahmed, SM Rahi Hasan Pranto, Shariful Islam and Sheikh Nazmul Hossain placed in the top 10 bowlers.
Pranto amongst the participating fast bowlers at 16 different venues of the campaign made the furore recording the highest speed of 134 km/h at City Club group in Dhaka.
The second year student of Tejgaon Government College could not better his bowling speed. His bowling speed in the final round was 129km, 130km, 131km per hour.   
In women’s category, Puja Chakraborty, who hailed from Faridpur, participated in Gopalganj venue and stunned all by her bowling speed of 100km/h in the final phase of the second elimination round to become the fastest women’s bowler. She got Tk 30,000 as prize money with crest and certificate.
Golam Rabbani emerged the fastest bowler in physically challenged category as he registered a 96km/h bowling speed in the final trail and received Tk 20,000 as prize money coupled with crest and certificate.
BCB vice-president Mahbub Anam distributed the prize amongst the winners as the chief guest.
“We’ll organise a 45-day-long intense training camp for the new fast-bowlers under the BCB-High Performance (HP) programme. Even, ahead of the National Cricket League (NCL), we’ll hold a week-long training programme for them so that they could take part in the upcoming meet,” said Anam after the end of the programme.
 Robi Axiata COO Mahtab Uddin Ahmed announced an incentive package for the sustainable development of the newly-exploited fast bowlers for the next five years.
As per his declaration, the top 13 fast-bowlers including 10 men, one women and one physically-challenged man will get monthly Tk 5,000 as scholarship and Tk 1000 as mobile bill. Along with that, they will receive two mobile hand sets in five years.
