Bangladesh Cricket Board will organize a cricket league prior to Pakistan series for better preparation. But Bangladesh’s No. 1 allrounder Shakib Al Hasan wont be able to play in that tournament due to commitments in IPL. IPL will be starting from 8th April and Shakib will leave Dhaka 7th April evening.
Shakib has signed for Prime Bank in Bangladesh Cricket League (BCL) but commitments with IPL will keep him out of the team. Then again,if he chooses IPL over BCL,will not be able to play the whole league but only 2 matches and must return before 22nd April to participate in the Pakistan Series.
But this all depends on either he gets the NOC (No Objection Certificate) from BCB or not. Cricket Board chairman Nazmul Hasan Papon right now staying in Australia and Shakib’s fate will be decided when he comes back.
