Record number of budding players play in national school cricket

Sports Reporter, Dhaka

Prime Bank National School Cricket, the country’s biggest cricket competition, for the 2018-2019 season has been kicked off with the participation of the record number of budding cricketers across the country.

A total of 11,120 cricketers from 556 schools all over the country area taking part in the current edition of the district phase, the window which opened from Faridpur on January 10.

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) director and its age-group cricket tournament committee chairman Tanjil Chowdhury stated all at a press conference at the media block of the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS) in Mirpur yesterday.

He was accompanied by BCB chief executive officer (CEO) Nizamuddin Chowhdury, Prime Bank Limited Managing Director and its CEO Rahel Ahmed, Prime Bank Foundation CEO Dr Anwar Iqbal and BCB Games Development senior national manager AEM Kawser.

This year, the highest number of 130 schools are participating from Dhaka Division and the lowest number of 32 schools from Dhaka Metropolitis.

A total of 90 schools are taking part from Chattogram, 84 from Khulna, 68 from Rajshahi, 63 from Barishal and 36 from Sylhet.

The divisional championship will be held with the best of the 64 districts schools after District championship concluded.

Therefore, the national championship will be played with the best seven divisional teams along with the Dhaka Metropolis champions.

Tanjil claimed that the lost pride of the school crickets has mostly been restored for the last three years. As example, he cited that the bulk of the young cricketers, who are now mesmerizing the age-level national teams have come from the school cricket.

“We could have kept the tournament in vogue successfully. The board will formulate a long-term plan with these cricketers in future,” Chowdhury noted.
