The 2nd Indo-Bangladesh Bangla Games which carry the slogan `Sports for Friendship' will have cricket as one of its nine disciplines. As the event is being partly supported by the Olympic Council of Asia, it marks the game's first step into the Olympics themselves.
Talking about the background of the Games, Bangladesh Olympic Association acting Secretary-General Kutubuddin Ahmed said: "Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) boss Ranbir Singh initially proposed us to be associated with such kind of Games…and has donated US$ 20,000 to BOA for the Games."
