Khaled Mahmud Sujon Surprised but Happy with Gazi Ashraf Hossain Lipu as Chief Selector


I was surprised because I hadn’t heard his name as a candidate, even though I’m the vice-chairman of cricket operations. Many other names were being talked about, but I didn’t know anything. That’s what surprised me the most,” Sujon said to reporters in Chattogram today.

The Dhaka coach expects everyone to respect the board’s decision and give the newly formed committee, which includes Hannan Sarkar and Abdur Razzak, a fair chance to show their capabilities.

Lipu bhai is a very knowledgeable person, he is much senior to me. He has seen Bangladesh cricket for many years. He was the Bangladesh captain, the Abahani captain. There can be no questions about his appointment. He can do well in this position.

Sujon expected Habibul Bashar Sumon, who had been on the selection panel since 2016, to become the chief selector instead of Minhajul Abedin.

I feel that Sumon definitely deserved it. He was a successful captain of the Bangladesh team, he was a successful cricketer and he also worked with the team for many years. I had hoped that he would be made chief selector if Nannu bhai gets replaced.
