Mashrafe Mortaza has secured the Narail-2 seat in Bangladesh's national elections, winning over 96% of the votes in his constituency. His result is part of Awami League's landslide victory, their third consecutive win in the country's general elections. He becomes the first active international cricketer to be a member of parliament in his country.

Sri Lanka Cricket has named an all-new selection committee headed by former Sri Lanka fast bowler Ashantha De Mel, a move which comes just six months from the World Cup. Alongside De Mel, the committee comprises three other former national players in Brendon Kuruppu, Hemantha Wickramaratne and Chaminda Mendis.
