The latest contract of the BCB selection panel expired on December 31 after several extensions. However, as there is a series against New Zealand, the previous selection panel is fulfilling its previous responsibilities. Minhazul Abedin Nannu is the chief selector of the panel. Nannu was widely questioned after losing the last T20 World Cup and the Pakistan series at home. Many questions also arose about the selection of cricketers for the team.

However, BCB officials have not yet revealed whether Nannu will be the chief selector in the new term. A decision on the matter will be taken at the next meeting of the board. Meanwhile, while talking to the media, Nannu expressed his desire to be on the selection panel of the BCB again.

As the Test series against New Zealand has come to an end, the national team has no activities at present. This year’s BPL event will be held on the field after the ongoing BCL. After that Afghanistan will come to Bangladesh to play ODI and T20 series. That too can be said in the very last part of next February.

In that series against the Afghans, what is the main responsibility of sorting out the Bangladesh team? Or will someone new be given the responsibility of the chief selector instead? Such questions are circulating in the minds of cricket fans of the country.

However, inside news, BCB policy makers are also thinking about the selection committee. Jalal Yunus, the new head of the cricket operations committee, also admitted that they were thinking about the selection committee and were working hard on it.

In this context, Jalal said, ‘There is no way without thinking about the selection committee. Because our agreement with Minhazul Abedin Nannu and Habibul Bashar has ended. So we have to do something. ‘

Will the BCB sign a new contract with Nannu and Bashar, whose contract has expired? Or will two new selectors be given the responsibility by excluding the two together? In response to such a question, Jalal Yunus said, ‘We also have it in our heads. But I don’t know what to say about change. Something has to be done with the selectors. When the contract is over, something has to be done. It has not been decided yet whether to give a new contract or change it.

“Now that the series with New Zealand is over, they are in turmoil,” said Jalal. Diameter, that’s all I can say. But what will not change? I can’t comment on whether Nannu and Sumon will remain in their respective posts. I will not do it. ‘

However, the BCB is a bit aware of the selection committee, said Jalal. “It simply came to our notice then. However, we have a concern about the selection committee, it can be said. We are not saying that we are not in search. Let’s see, what can be done? ‘

It is difficult to find any clue from the words of Jalal Yunus. However, inside the news, there has been a lot of talk about the selection committee at the top level of the BCB. After the utter failure in the T20 World Cup, there was some thought of changing the position of the chief selector.

Listening to the above, it seems natural that former national team captain Farooq Ahmed is not sitting in the chair of his peer and former colleague Nannu. So don’t assume that no one else is likely to be the chief selector.

According to a senior BCB official, Nannu has been the target of criticism on social media for several months now. Writing about him is also going on in the media. There are lots of trolls too. So the BBC is a little embarrassed. There are also fears that Nannu’s renewal of his contract could hurt the board.

So what happened? Who will be the chief selector? Nannui stay? The inside news is that in the end, after all the calculations, the BCB is probably going to change the post of chief selector. The BCB may be moving towards forming a three-member committee with Nannu out and Habibul Bashar as the chief selector.

Nannu has been the chief selector of the Bangladesh team since 2016. He has been a part of the selection panel since 2011.

Nannu took over as the chief selector after the resignation of the then chief selector Farooq Ahmed. Then in 2019, the former batsman of Bangladesh started his work for a new term.
