The BCB constitution modification approved by the Sports Council
Officials from the BCB announced on Monday, October 3, that the National Sports Council had approved their updated constitution, clearing the way for the launch of the much anticipated Regional Cricket Association.
During its most recent annual general meeting, BCB modified its constitution to introduce the RCA, but it needed NSC’s blessing.
Nizamuddin Chowdhury, the chief executive of the BCB, stated that an annual general meeting would be necessary in order to modify the constitution. We must first have the board’s stakeholder support for the new constitution, and then we must get board approval of the updated constitution.
The BCB will employ this updated constitution until 2022 after submitting it to the NSC, who adopted it. Aside from that, at yesterday’s board meeting, we adopted the RCA policy we want to implement.
The draught policy in place, there are no longer any barriers preventing us from launching the RCA. We had been working on it for a while and submitted the draught policy for approval at our most recent AGM “Added he.
Divisional headquarters in Dhaka, Sylhet, Rajshahi, Chattogram, Khulna, Rangpur, and Barisal will be managed by Dhaka, while those in Rajshahi, Rajshahi, Chattogram, Khulna, and Rangpur will have RCAs.
RCA is anticipated to be a key step in decentralising cricket’s administrative structure and grassroots operations, which will have a big impact on the sport’s overall development. When Eddie Barlow led Bangladesh coaching staff in 1999–2000, he pioneered the idea in an effort to advance cricket in the nation. He contributed to the creation and implementation of the programmes that led to the nation’s formal Test status. At same time, he also promoted the RCA’s creation.
The Bangladesh cricket team currently appears to be on life support. The sport is being administered and managed by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), which is unable to not only provide a comprehensive platform that can produce tangible results on the field but is also obviously and alarmingly symptomatic of an amateur sport management system that keeps failing to offer long-term solutions for the development of the game.
I am not a cricket specialist, thus I am not qualified to talk about the particular problems Bangladesh has on the field. As a result, I will highlight several fundamental issues that the BCB must address in order to maintain its position as the nation’s premier athletic organisation in this piece.
