Saturday, August 25, 2007

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) confirmed AB Bank as the national team's official sponsor for the ICC Twenty20 World Championship to be held in South Africa in September.

Three bidders dropped their bids on August 15 and the private bank won the rights to sponsor the South Africa-bound national team as the highest bidder but BCB didn't want to disclose the amount.

"The sponsor company will disclose the amount within a short period of time. This bank won the right as the highest bidder. They also got the ICC approval," said media committee chairman Ahmed Sajjadul Alam Bobby.

He also informed that they would also disclose the name of the sponsor for clothing rights for the Tigers for this tournament.

Bangladesh has been pitted in Group A along with hosts South Africa and West Indies in the competition.
