Wait till Sunday, says Papon

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan Papon appeared before the media two days after returning from London, but the BCB boss still kept everything close to his chest.

Everybody was eagerly awaiting Papon's take on two burning issues -- the controversy surrounding the amended board constitution and the Tigers' proposed tour of Pakistan – which is why he was faced with questions as soon as the media got wind of his presence at the inauguration of the Bangladesh Cricket League at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur. But the BCB chief said a meeting with the media on Sunday will hopefully clear the air regarding the current issues.

He however said that there are still concerns about their tour to Pakistan next month. “We still have our concerns.

At this moment we cannot comment on our decision. We cannot just say anything definitively,” said Papon.

“Within the next day or two, we can let you know something. We will sit and discuss the situation once again,” he added.
