Are you kidding me?

Mostafa Kamal has been appointed as the President of the Bangladesh Cricket Board. I don't know who he is, so there is a fat chance you lot will know who he is. But according to research, he is a freaking senior member of the Parliament and the current Government of Bangladesh.

But don't worry, even if the Government has the power to elect the President, the rest of the 24 members is selected by the board.
Because that makes a difference right? When the President, the final decision maker, has the backing of freaking dirty politicians, the rest of the board's opinions obviously count just as much!

In case you are wondering what I am talking about, all Bangladeshi politicians want to do is gain power and have a say in everything irrespective of expertise, because they fucking sit in Office. We've worked so hard to give equal opportunities to players from all over Bangladesh! Something tells me the BCB is about to undo all the good work.

Another setback for Bangladeshi cricket. The team might not grow, but this list sure does!

why are you so shocked purna?

it is a norm in India !
we have sharad pawar (minister for food,agriculture and what not) heading the BCCI till recently ..and now narendra modi(gujrat chief minister) was elected as president of his state cricket association and lalu prasad yadav also has a stake!

in India lalit modi is backed by the BJP ..that too openly and narendra modi is also of the BJP!

anyhow it was just about time the bangladesh had to have political influence in all this

and as we all know sri lanka generally the preident is sacked and the sports ministry takes over!!

where there is money there will be politicians!

Purna said...

Because I knew that it happened, but I always denied it.

Are Narendra Modi and Lalit Modi brothers?

How are we supposed to compete in international cricket with all these unnecessary factors involved?

Aditya said...

I don't think both of the Modi's are related!

and i forgot to mention one more thing.All this gives political leverage as well

If the team does well they will say we helped them and what not!
