BCB will decide
The Bangladesh Cricket Board said on Monday it may reconsider granting a “ certificate of no objection ” (NOC) to cricketer Shakib Al Hasan to play IPL 2021.
What did the BCB say?
BCB Cricket Operations chairman Akram Khan said after meeting with board chairman Najmul Hasan at his residence that the granting of NOCs to Shakib would be considered within the next two days. He said: “Shakib made it clear in his letter that he wanted to play in the IPL instead of the Test Series against Sri Lanka”.
Shakib will play in Test?
According to ESPNcricinfo, Khan said, “I heard that I had not read his letter. Maybe I couldn’t figure this out. He wants to play the test like he said. We will be reviewing his NOC in the next 2 days. If they show interest, they will play the Test against Sri Lanka.
