Accreditation: Bangladesh cricket tour

From Che Mangan, ECB
Application forms for accreditation for England’s forthcoming tour to Bangladesh are now available from the ECB.

All applications need to be emailed to me, in the form of a scan (or can be posted, but a scan is preferable), accompanied by two jpeg photos (colour) and a letter of assignment (more information below) by no later than Wednesday January 13.

I will then forward everything that I am happy with on to the Bangladesh Cricket Board before their deadline of noon on Thursday January 21.

Please note below further important information from the BCB:

a) If your application is posted/couriered to Ché please attach 2 passport-size photos (colour) with applicant’s full name clearly printed in BLOCK LETTERS on the back.
b) A Letter of Assignment on respective organisation’s letterhead pad signed by the concerned authority (i.e. Organisational Head/Editor/Sports Editor) should accompany each completed Application Form.
c) The BCB may seek verification of the applicant’s status from the respective Cricket Boards.
d) The applicant will be responsible for the procedure related to obtaining visa and his/her travel arrangements.
e) The BCB reserves the right to accept or reject the Accreditation request. Applicants will be notified by e-mail after their forms have been received by the BCB’s Media & Communications Department and also after acceptance.
f) Accreditation cards will be distributed from a designated office (details to be e-mailed to the applicants) and must be collected personally by the applicant.

Details of England’s warm up matches prior to this tour are yet to be confirmed. News is expected next week.
