There are reports of some players from Bangladesh cricket being ruled out of the tour ahead of the T20 series starting next month between India and Bangladesh. The experienced batsman of the team Tamim Iqbal has already agreed to go in this tour. In such a situation, news is coming that the team's veteran all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan may also be out of this tour.
Shakib, who is facing a show cause notice in the case of violation of the terms of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), is not going to visit India. According to Cricinfo's report, Shakib has not participated in the team's practice session ever since he received a show cause notice. BCB President Najmul Hasan has already said that strict action will be taken against Shakib if he does not give a satisfactory reply.
Hasan has now indicated that Shakib may stay out of the India tour. Hasan told Prothome Alo, a leading newspaper in Bangladesh, that the team would leave for India tour on Wednesday and some players, especially Shakib, might be out of the tour. Hasan said, “I believe they (the players) will not go and they will tell us about it when we have nothing to do. I do not know. I have spoken to Shakib today. Let's see what he says. It may also be for others, but I have come to know that they will not leave. ”
Shakib was recently associated with the Grameenphone company as an ambassador and as per the agreements with the players of BCB, cricketers who are under national contract cannot join the telecom company. The board is extremely upset with Shakib's attitude and has sent a show cause notice to Shakib.
