The much-talked-about election to the country's most affluent sports body, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), will be held on Tuesday.
The voting will begin at 10am at the BCB board room at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur and end on 5pm.
Out of the 23 directors, 20, including outgoing BCB President Nazmul Hassan Papon, have already been elected unopposed.
