Sylhet’s flood situation has gotten much worse. There has been a disaster for people. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has decided to help the people of Sylhet who have been affected by the floods. Nizam Uddin Chowdhury, the head of BCB, told the media at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur, “We always try to help those who are hurt by these kinds of natural disasters.” I don’t think there will ever be another one. Our president of the board has already told us what to do. We’re working on fixing that. Shafiul Alam Chowdhury, the director of the BCB and head of the board’s women’s section, has been in charge of this. It has been learned that BCB will help pay for food to be sent there. Nizam Uddin said, “We’ve already talked to the board director in charge of the issue. He is talking to the local government about how we can help or how we can watch. We’re working on fixing that. We hope that you’ll soon see something.
Discussions are underway to rehabilitate flood victims at the Sylhet International Stadium, as various areas of Sylhet have been submerged. However, the BCB chief executive said that no such proposal has come to them yet. Meanwhile, the BCB is also keeping in touch with the families of the Sylhet cricketers who are on a tour of the West Indies. Ibadat Hossain, Khaled Ahmed, and Rezaur Rahman are with the Test team. Nasum Ahmed is about to catch a flight to West Indies in a few days. The BCB plans for them, ‘Sylhet has some players in our national team who are currently out of the country with the team. We have been told to keep in touch with their families. We are working that way. Our respective board managers have contact with them. We are thinking of ways to stay by their side. ‘
