BCSA UK president Salam said: “Cricket is a global sport and we are pleased with how we have linked with BCSA Bangladesh to provide a national and international platform for cricket fans.

“We are volunteer-driven and I’m proud of what we continue to achieve through our liaison with the grassroots all the way up to the higher echelons of cricket administration.

“I urge everyone to join and support us in what we are trying to achieve.”
