Dhaka:It's a healthy carrot that has been dangled for the Bangladesh cricket team.

Cellular company- CityCell has put on offer a luxury car for the first Bangladesh batsman who can score a century and a bowler who can claim eight wickets in a match during the upcoming two Test series against Zimbabwe.

A gorgeous brand new Nissan Sunny will be parked for display during the first Test commencing at the MA Aziz Stadium in Chittagong on January 6 with the home side for the first time seriously eyeing a maiden Test victory.

The cellular company also won the right for title sponsorship of the series that also includes five One-dayers.

The cellular giant won the right with a hefty bid of $ 80,000, which also means the Tigers will sport logos of two of the country's top mobile operators with Grameen-Phone being team sponsor.

According to BCB sources, Grameen-Phone, Standard Chartered bank, Unilever and Rahimafrooz also bid for the title sponsorship.
