Dhaka:The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is in the midst of a legal tangle with the High Court directing the Sports Secretary of the National Sports Council (NSC) and Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to explain as to why the BCB constitution-2003 should not be declared illegal.

Apparently, the court had asked them to restrain from acting upon the impugned constitution - which would mean that a great deal of uncertainty hangs over the BCB elections that had already expired its 4-year term on Thursday.

The order was issued following a writ filed by three directors of BCB challenging the legality of its constitution-2003.

They submitted that the authorities had purportedly replaced the constitution under which they were elected in 2001. The impugned constitution was imposed by a vested quarter with a sinister motive of controlling Bangladesh cricket which is gaining a bigger place in the world cricket.

It's worth noting that the Supreme Court on March 1, stayed the High Court order reinstating the directors of BCB and had ordered the authorities to conduct elections at the earliest.
