Agrani Bank Cricket Club

HistoryEdit

The club is owned by Agrani Bank, one of the largest banks in Bangladesh. It is one of the oldest existing cricket clubs in Bangladesh, having competed in domestic cricket since the first competitions in 1972–73.[3] They were promoted to the Dhaka Premier Division for 2017–18 after finishing first in Group A of the Dhaka First Division Cricket League in 2016–17.[4]

In their first List A match, in the first round of the 2017–18 tournament, they beat the defending champions Gazi Group Cricketers by 8 wickets.[5] However, they finished the group stage of the 2017–18 tournament in eleventh place,[6] therefore qualifying for the relegation playoffs.[7] In the final match of the relegation playoffs, they lost to Brothers Union by four wickets, therefore relegating them to the Dhaka First Division Cricket League for the next season.[8]
