</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>Nazmul Hassan, the new Bangladesh Cricket Board president, has identified improvement in national team's Test performance and spreading the game better in the country as the challenges for Bangladesh cricket. Hassan was appointed (http://www.espncricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/story/587002.html) as the replacement to AHM Mustafa Kamal who was confirmed the vice president of the ICC, ending his three-year tenure as the BCB president.
"We are weak in the longer version of the game. We are good in the shorter formats," Hassan said. "We have to focus on how we can do better in the longer version. We have to further popularise the game in the country and bring out cricketers from remote areas. This is going to be my biggest challenge."
Hassan, however, said that the onus of the improvement in the performance would lie with the players and the board will do its best to facilitate the change.
"We win some and we lose some but it [Test cricket performance] has nothing to do with the success or shortcomings of the board president," he said.
Hassan was selected according to the existing constitution, which states that the board president will be a government nominee. The board has submitted its amended constitution to the National Sports Council (NSC) for approval and one of the major amendments is that the president will be elected and not picked by the government. NSC, the sports regulatory body is yet to pass the amendment.

We heard the same thing when Loitta started as the president. Let's see what future has in store for us. For our cricket's sake I hope this guy is the real deal.

The same stuff again and again, as if we haven't been told before or we have no idea what our shortcomings are. Just a different speaker.

No. Bangladesh needs to focus on grass-root level cricket. That is our factory for making good professional cricketers. Emphasise more on longer version of cricket there first. The success will trickle down to all levels.

Bangladesh needs to focus on "BCB" .. ..I.e. Management of the game.
