The Bangladesh Cricket Board wants to fill the slot left by the selector Faruk Ahmed for which they have approached former player Abdur Razzak as a third member of the selection panel. Along with Razzak, BCB also approached Minhajul Abedin and Habibul Bashar for the selection panel.
Reports revealed that BCB approached Razzak to take the role as selector in the selection panel but he is taking his time to get respond to the offer. He, being engaged in Dhaka Premier League, it is still not known whether he wants to continue his playing career, stated by BCB cricket operations chairman Akram Khan.
“I’ve asked one of our selector, Habibul Bashar to know about the opinion of Razzak regarding our proposal of being a member of the selection panel. He is currently taking part in the DPL , hence taking time to make the decision. It is still not known either he wants to continue his career or not.”
Razzak while speaking to a local media said, BCB had contacted him giving a chance to take the role of selector. Due to his engagements with DPL, he couldn’t respond but as of now due to corona affect all over the world, he will have time for it now.
“Yes, they’ve contacted me but I took my time to take decision. I have told them after the DPL matches I will let them know. Now I can think about this as the league is postponed now.”
The left-arm spinner wants to take time to take decision on this because it is a big decision to make taking role of selector which means that to quite his playing career.
“It’s not so easy decision for me to leave the cricket and to join the new job as I’m living on cricket for a long time. I need to take lot of time to make decision so that I will not feel regret later whatever it happens.”
Abdul Razzak played 200 international matches claiming 278 wickets and scoring 1072 runs representing Bangladesh side.
