Bangladesh cricket chief Ahmed passes away

January 10, 2012 14:47 IST

Bangladesh Cricket BoardĀ chief executive officer Manzur Ahmed has died of a cardiac arrest, his family and the board confirmed on Tuesday.

He was 57.

"We deeply regret to inform you that our chief executive officer died of a cardiac arrest this morning at his home," BCB physician Debasish Chowdhury said in a statement.

The former cricketer, who played for a Bangladeshi representative side against a visiting MCC team in 1977, took over as CEO of the board in August 2010 following a stint in an identical role for the governing body in Brunei.
