The Bangladesh Cricket Board was founded in 1972 as the Bangladesh Cricket Control Board.[4] Its first constitution was drafted in 1976.[5] The board changed its name, dropping "Control" from its title, in January 2007.[6] Since 2003 telecommunications company Grameenphone has sponsored the men and women's national teams. Between 2007 and 2011 they invested 151.5 million (US$1.4 million) in developing sport in the country.[7] In 2006 the Board established an academy to encourage the development of young players.[8] The Board issues central contracts and match fees to the national players.[9]

Regional cricket associations

In the 2022 Annual General Meeting, BCB President Nazmul Hassan announced to have amended the board's constitution to make way for seven regional cricket associations for Barisal, Chattogram, Dhaka, Khulna Rajshahi, Rangpur and Sylhet. Larger regional bodies will have 11 members while smaller bodies will consist of 7 members.[10][11]
