DHAKA, May 2: Bangabandhu National Stadium (BNS) is set to host the inaugural ceremony of ICC World Twenty20 in 2014 which Bangladesh will host solely.

The decision was taken in an Inter-ministerial on Wednesday. The decision now is waiting the approval of prime minister Sheikh Hasina.

It was decided that a total of eight matches will be held at the BNS including the women’s matches.

The Twenty20 Cricket World Cup will start on April 1, 2014 and will be run till April 20. 16 countries will take part in men’s category and 10 countries (subject to ICC approval) will participate in women’s category. 39 matches will be held in men’s cricket while 15 matches will be held in women’s cricket.

“To hold cricket at the BNS was discussed in the meeting but no official decision was taken still,” BCB acting CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury Sujon told the reporters on Wednesday.

In the meeting the state minister for youth and sports Ahad Ali Sarkar also differed with BCB’s decision to scratch cricketers’ councillorship in BCB’s constitution. With the amendment, the BCB tried to oust cricketers’ from the BCB.

Ahad Ali Sarkar said, “When the BCB sent the amendment constitution in National Sports Council (NSC), we didn’t accept it. We think cricketers’ are needed in BCB to develop the country’s cricket.”

BNS last hosted international cricket on January 31 in 2005. Then the inaugural ceremony of the Cricket World Cup was held here on March 17, 2011.

During the meeting, it was decided to renovate and modernise the stadiums where the matches of the Twenty20 World Cup will
be held.
