Bangladesh Cricket Board President Nazmul Hasan steps down and takes up the ministry role

After the incumbent Nazmul Hasan was entrusted with the responsibility of the Ministry of Youth and Sports following his win in the general elections, Bangladesh Cricket Board is set to have a new president. Hasan, who has been at the helm of BCB since 2012, won from Kishoreganj-6 constituency in the January 7 polls, and four days later he replaced Zahid Ahsan Russell in the ministry, and he's likely to step down from his present post. Nazmul told the reporters, “There are no problems in the law about me holding both posts.
He added, “There is no relationship between getting ministry and leaving from the post of BCB because earlier there were several ministers who also fulfilled the roles. It is also there abroad and so that is not the issue.” “But it would be good if that is not the case (holding both the posts) because then there might be speculations of me prioritizing cricket. I want to prioritize everything (being the Minister of Sports).”
BCB's elections are due only in October 2025, and an existing member of the governing body may take charge on an interim basis in case Nazmul quits.
