A meeting of the Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis (CCDM) was held today (Wednesday, 23 January 2019) on the Dhaka Second Division Cricket League 2018-19 match (scorecard attached) between Azim Cricket Club and Dhanmondi Progoti Sangha held on 20 January 2019 at the BKSP-3 Ground. The game had to be called off in the 9th over of the Dhanmondi Progoti Sangha innings after the team refused to play protesting an umpiring decision.
