Enam Jr Steps Down As President Of Sylhet Cricketers Association

Former Bangladesh cricketer Enamul Haque Jr stepped down as president of the Sylhet Cricketers Association on Sunday. 

The 37-year-old took this sudden decision citing discontent with Sylhet’s first division league and personal reasons.

“First of all, I was unable to give enough time since my family moved to the UK which is the major reason for me to step down,” Enamul told a local newspaper.

“We fought for a better league in Sylhet last year but despite our attempts, the standard of cricket remained low and I was unable to do anything from my end. So, I want a new leadership to take the responsibility,” he added. 

Sylhet has been producing several leading pacers like Ebadot Hossain, Khaled Ahmed and Abu Jayed for the last few years. 

But last year, players from Sylhet protested and warned to boycott all forms of cricket in the region if their demand for a round-robin league system along with the introduction of the relegation league was not met.

“Those who are involved in conducting the Sylhet league tend to keep hold of their position in order to take personal and political advantage. I am not willing to take such an advantage since I don’t need it,” he said. 

“I wanted the standard of cricket to be improved. Teams can’t even field eleven players in games. We even witnessed nine players playing in a match where teams got bundled out for just 40-50 runs,” he concluded.
