Mashrafe bin Murtaza, the most successful captain of Bangladesh cricket, has been selected as the "Young Global Leader" in World Economic Forum (Weforum).
Bangladesh's cricket icon and the former captain Mashrafe is on top 15 of Weforum's Young Global Leaders list.
Each year, the Forum of Young Global Leaders goes through a rigorous selection process to identify, select and commemorate remarkable leaders under 40 who come from different communities and industries worldwide.
The World Economic Forum selected 112 people from around the world to find 10 young leaders in 2021. This year, 10 young leaders have been elected from South Asia. Mashrafe was among them.
These young leaders exemplify what we need most today: hope, empathy, authenticity and the drive to develop solutions that can change the world for the better.
Young leaders around the world are leading by example and paving the way for action on these issues.
