Monwar's mum receives cheque from BCB


The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) handed over a cheque to Mrs Anowara, the mother of late sports journalist Monwar Ahmed, at its Gulshan office yesterday.

BCB president Ali Asghar gave the cheque worth nearly Tk 56,000.

To raise money for the late journalist, whose untimely death last year shocked the sports fraternity, BCB had decided to give his family Tk 2 from every ticket sold from the two one-day matches between New Zealand and Bangladesh last October.
