They are also members of a panel led by Nazmul Hasan, the incumbent BCB president.

Meanwhile, Hasan has withdrawn as a councillor and has been appointed as a BCB director in the National Sports Council quota. Ismail Haider Mallick and Ahmed Sajjadul Alam are the other directors from the quota.

Three directors' position from category 1 will be contested while the only director's post in category 3 will be contested by two former Bangladesh captains, Gazi Ashraf Hossain and Khaled Mahmud.
