No Bangladeshi cricketers in PSL this year
Bangladeshi cricketers are not included in the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) this year which raised an eyebrow.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) however confirmed that the players will be unavailable for the PSL because their home series against Zimbabwe will coincide with the tournament, supervised by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Usually Bangladeshi players stars in the PSL and performed magnificently in the past.
As many as 23 players name was listed in the PSL draft for this year's auction but no teams showed interest in any Bangladeshi players after knowing their unavailability.
Tamim Iqbal, Mahmuddullah Riyad, Mustafizur Rahman and Mohammed Saifuddin was placed in gold category for the auction.
The likes of Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Mahmuddullah Riyad, Sabbir Rahman and some others also played PSL before.
Even though their unavailability for the tournament was the reason that there was no takers for them, the Bangladeshi player's opportunity to play foreign leagues is getting lesser day by day.
No team from the newly introduced 100-ball cricket by England had shown any interest to Bangladeshi players as well. -BSS
