Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has offered the role of a selector to former left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak. He will replace Faruk Ahmed in the panel. If Razzak gives his consent, he will be the third member of the national selection panel, along with Minhajul Abedin and Habibul Bashar.
As per reports in Cricbuzz, the governing body has already offered to the former left-arm spinner. However, Abdur Razzak is taking some time to make his mind and convey the results to the concerned authority.
BCB cricket operations chairman Akram Khan revealed the news of offering the role to the former international cricketer. He also added that the cricketer is taking some time as he is currently plying his trade in the Dhaka Premier League.
”I have asked Habibul Bashar [selector] to know his [Razzak] mind regarding our proposal [of being part of the selection panel]. Razzak is taking time as he is playing in the DPL. We are not sure whether he wants to prolong his career or not,” said Akram.
Meanwhile, Abdur Razzak also confirmed the same and added that he hadn’t responded yet because of his commitments with a club in the DPL. However, with the league now postponed, he will think again before intimating the officials about his decision.
”Yes they have contacted me but I wanted some time to decide,” said Razzak. ”I have told them that I will let them know after the Dhaka Premier League matches. Now as the league is postponed, I can think about this now,” he added.
