Cricketers in Bangladesh are being suppressed - Shakib

Sunday, 20 October 2019 - 6:52


Shakib Al Hasan lashed out against the rule of compulsorily bowling leg-spinners for four overs in the Bangladesh Premier League, saying the T20 competition was a platform to familiarise domestic players with international cricket scenarios, rather than wanting to make a player there.

This comes after the Bangladesh Cricket Board issued a mandate of having a leg-spinner and an overseas pacer who bowls over 140 kmph in every game in the T20 tournament.

It had even dismissed two team coaches for having failed to feature leg-spinners in their respective playing XIs in the National Cricket League.
