Cricket & DNF

December 15, 2009

Dear All
I’m currently researching into the history of Bangladeshi cricket, and it is leading me back not only to 1947-1971 period of cricketing in East Pakistan, but also cricket played in East Bengal of undivided India. In this regard I’d be highly interested in the contributions (actual players/matches/ support material or otherwise) that the Dhaka Nawab family made to cricket in Dhaka, and in greater Bengal.
Thank you very much
Yours sincerely

PS. Just by way of brief introduction, I used to teach at Dhaka University, and knew Khawaju Moinul Hasan well. I was also the literary editor of The Daily Star until recently, and on the sad demise of KMH we ran an in memoriam of him in the literature page.

    Interesting book that outlines how sports played a role defining identity of Muslims in South Asia. Pays glorious tribute to K. Nooruddin for the success of Calcuttal Mohammedan club.
