Khaled Mahmud Sujon, director of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and its Games Development Committee chairman said that they are mulling to formulate a four-year master plan what they discussed to a limited scale among themselves.

Sujon also said they will soon put forward the proposal of this essential plan to the board meeting for further discussion so it could be more realistic that can be enhanced for the development of the country’s cricket.

“Of course, we are contemplating to devise a master plan for the next four years,” said Khaled Mahmud Sujon, who already proposed to the board his desires to take  charge of the national team for a longer period.

“In the meantime, we will play ICC World T20 (in Australia). We’ve also Champions Trophy. Keeping those in mind, we have to produce more players. It will not be good for producing only players; we have to strengthen our pipeline because we have to play for a longer period ahead. We’ve Tests, T20Is along with ODIs. I think, we have so many ODIs in a row since 2021,” Sujon told media.

“Sometimes injury creates a big problem. So, it’s important for us to produce so many back-up players. We’ve to keep our vigil eyes on our ‘A’ team and HP team. You know all our ‘A’ team is now playing in India. And HP is also playing here. We’ve to ensure that boys can get a podium of playing so many games and prove their worth. Real development never comes only through practicing. They’ve to expertise playing in the field,” he added.

Bangladesh have not enough bowling variations as they are yet to add a leg-spinner to the current crop of the bowling battery what is considered as a lethal weapon in the modern day cricket. Even they have no quick bowlers, who can regularly bowl in the speed of 145kph or more.

Former national skipper admitted the reality and necessity of the variations in bowling battery, stating that they have some quick bowlers in the development stage that needed some more years to come out in flourishing level.

Along with that, he also said that leg-spinner has to be natural talented but they’ve some budding leg-spinners in hands who are grooming by our coaches. Along with that, he said that they are trying to find out more so that they could  enlarge their bowling variations and sustain the existing competition.   

“There are some players who are genuine and natural. Actually leg-spin is a matter of natural. You can’t forcibly make a leg-spinner. There are some more players who are now working under us. I think, they are our future hopes. Those who are working under development are good fast bowlers. I also think, our future fast bowling will be further better,” he said.

“But it’ll not be too early. It’s not that they are ready right now. But what we have are all good. Suppose those who went to World Cup such as Rubel, Mustafiz, Mashrafe and Rahi all are proven bowlers. May be our execution did not do well in this World Cup. We didn’t show off ourselves,” he also said.

“Producing leg-spinner is not so easy. One has to have natural ability. We’ve to bring it out. We have to give more chances to them. It’s a big problem of our club cricket where we didn’t want to give chance to leg-spinner,” he added.

Citing Jubair Hossain Likhon, Sujon said that such type of bowlers need patronise what is lacking in our club cricket and domestic cricket.

He also said that they have to try by these explored bowlers for their flourish in BCL where they have a team.     

“He played for the national team. But he could not play at club cricket properly. It’s  happened because he could not play first class cricket. And clubs made paid team. They paid players. If a club does not allow a player to play, the board can do nothing for it,” he said.

Sujon said that they have plans to organise a spinner-hunt programme throughout the country to sort out the budding and raw potential on spin bowling.

“I believe that we could be produced such type of leg-spinner within the next three or five years. We’ve so many talented batsmen. We have no quality leg-spinners. We are working on them. We’re trying to find out spinners across the country. We’re scheduled to launch a spinner-hunting camp. We’ll try our best to sort out leg-spinner to add to the national fleet in days to come,” he informed.
