Nazmul Hasan was among the 12 directors elected in Category-2 in the Bangladesh Cricket Board's (BCB) Board of Directors election today, while former Bangladesh captain Khaled Mashud and prominent cricket coach Najmul Abedeen Fahim were the only two big-name casualties, both losing in their first election campaign.
Out of 57 voters in Category-2, Papon received 53 votes, tied for first with Gazi Golam Mortuza and Enayet Hossain.
Gazi Golam Mortuza, Najib Ahmed, Mahbub Anam, Obed Nijam, Salauddin Chowdhury, Ismail Haider Mollick, Enayet Hossain, Monjur Kader, Monjur Alam, Fahim Sinha, and Iftekhar Rahman are the 11 other directors elected by the club representatives for the upcoming period.
Meanwhile, Mashud ran for councillor in Rajshahi Division against Saiful Alam Chowdhury Swapan, a member of the previous board. Rajshahi Division had nine voters in total, of which Swapan bagged seven, while two went to Mashud.
In category three, former Bangladesh captain Khaled Mahmud defeated former BCB game development manager and notable coach Najmul Abedeen Fahim, who was also competing for the first time, by a margin of 37-3 votes.
The results, on the other hand, were made public in an unofficial manner. Tomorrow, the newly elected directors will exercise their voting powers to elect a new board president.
