An awareness raising session between the Under-19 Cricket Team of Bangladesh and a group of disadvantaged boys and girls from Dhaka was arranged today at the International Cricket Council (ICC) U19 Cricket World Cup. The session focused on ‘code of conduct’ not only in cricket, but in our day-to-day lives to encourage positive and respectful behaviour.

The interaction with the children followed by a practice session with the cricketers was organized as part of the ICC Cricket for Good partnership with UNICEF, in collaboration with the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).  

“We are thankful to the ICC as well as the BCB for providing children with this opportunity. Such support and commitment from one of the world’s most popular sports encourages us to do more for the lives and future of children in Bangladesh,” said UNICEF Bangladesh Representative, Edouard Beigbeder. 



“I am very hopeful that the training programme with the Bangladesh team that is participating in the ongoing ICC U19 CWC 2016 and the code of conduct session in which they have interacted with the players, will inspire the youngsters to pursue all that is good about the game and its values including hard work, dedication, perseverance and discipline,” said BCB CEO Nizam Uddin Chowdhury.

During October 2015, the ICC and UNICEF announced a five-year partnership to advocate on behalf of the world’s most disadvantaged children. Every year 5.9 million children die before their fifth birthday from mostly preventable causes; over half a billion children live in extreme poverty; and 59 million primary school-aged children do not go to school.



The ICC Cricket for Good and UNICEF partnership aims to raise awareness of these challenges and encourage cricket fans to speak out for the children whose lives are these statistics. As a part of this partnership the special cricket coaching session has been arranged.
