Last night we held a reception for the Bangladesh cricket team in the City of Westminster at Council House on Marylebone Road, the Monday before the 5 day test match against England at Lords starting on this coming Thursday the 27th of May. This reception was well attended by youngest in the local Bangladeshi community, who were meeting their star cricketers for the first time. The reception occurred on the same day that the new Prime Minister, David Cameron gave the England team a reception at Downing Street.
Below you will see a photo of Karen Buck MP, the local member of parliament for Lords cricket ground welcoming the Bangladesh cricket team to Westminster. The High Commissioner of Bangladesh, Dr Sayeedur Rahman Khan is on my right side and he also greeted the team.
The event was organised by the Bangladesh High Commission, in conjunction with councillors at the City of Westminster Council, in particular Cllr Barrie Taylor.
