Media Release : BCB statement on unsubstantiated reports in the media

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has noted with concern some dubious reporting recently on certain print and electronic media platforms regarding the Bangladesh National Team which is currently on tour in South Africa. It has been observed that baseless and fictitious news connecting players and team management is being circulated without naming any source for the unsubstantiated information.


The BCB values the objective coverage of the media and appreciates its traditional support to Bangladesh cricket. The Board requests media houses to refrain from publishing or broadcasting unverified reports that reek of negativity and could have a detrimental effect on the morale of the team.
