Faruque unhappy

Tuesday, August 21, 2007

Chief national cricket selector Faruque Ahmed criticised the delay about announcement of the new national selection panel.

"It's getting too late to finalise the panel at the end of this month. I don't know why they are taking too much time to decide about the new committee," said Faruque, whose contract along with his other colleague Athar Ali Khan will expire on August 31.

"What I feel that it would not be easy for someone to decide about within a day or two whether he will accept the offer from the board. One should understand one thing that it is no more an amateur job," he added while talking with reporters at the Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium yesterday.

Meanwhile, the new ad-hoc committee formed a sub-committee headed by Shafiqur Rahman Munna to form the new selectors' committee and what Munna already informed that they would announce the selectors' names at the end of this month.
