Title sponsors announced
The Bangladesh Cricket Board yesterday declared Bashundhara Cement as the title sponsor of the Test and ODI series between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.
Hosts Bangladesh in the 45-day-long bilateral series will play three Tests and five ODIs against the visitors. A logo unveiling ceremony was held on this regard at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium yesterday where senior dignitaries of both the BCB and Bashundhara Group were present.
The first time the conglomerate came up to support cricket was during Bangladesh’s home series against Pakistan in 2009. However the BDR tragedy in that year forced the series off.
Bashundhara Group advisor Major General (Ret) Mahbub Haider Khan, head of marketing of the group Jashim Uddin and GM of Bashundhara Cement Khondoker Kingshuk Hossain were present in the logo unveiling ceremony. Media committee chairman Jalal Younus and CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury represented BCB in the ceremony.
