Bangladesh Cricket Board will take decision on Lokman Hossain in the next board meeting where he will hold the post as chairman of Facilities Management Committee of BCB.

Jalal Yunus, chairman of Media and Communication Committee of BCB, told reporters at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Monday.

He said, “The board president (Nazmul Hasan) cleared it earlier that if he (Lokman) is found guilty, we will take action against him. We are waiting (for the decision of the court in his case).”

We may discuss the matter in the next board meeting,” he added.
