Player selections and all the processes related to this ahead of another season of Bangladesh Premier League or BPL 2019-20 has already been started. And just after a few days of this, there has been a major confusion regarding the inclusion of Shakib Al Hasan, the country’s biggest star in all formats. It has been reported that Shakib Al Hasan will be featuring for Rangpur Riders in BPL 2019-20.
But Bangladesh Cricket Board alongside the authority concerned of BPL franchise Dhaka Dynamites intended to put a hold to that as they claimed Shakib should not be allowed to move to a new contract as all the franchises will have to renew their existing contracts at first if applicable. Then they will be allowed to go for new signing. To get more news on that, please continue reading.
BCB’s stand on Shakib-Rangpur issue
BCB who regulates the BPL governing committee is yet to come up with a solution by clarifying the law regarding BPL 2019-20. However, a spokesperson from BCB has told the reporters that there might be major changes in terms of the BPL player selection process and all things will be cleared once new rules are implemented. The source primarily unveiled that Shakib’s move to Rangpur Riders before the player retention phase may not be treated as an appropriate one according to the rules. However, the same source also hinted that there are high chances that there will be no icon players in BPL 7. If that happens, then Shakib’s move to Rangpur will not be a problem.
Shakib-Mashrafe both will play for us, says Rangpur Riders
BPL franchise Dhaka Dynamites had revealed that Shakib was always under their contract and contact as well. They claimed that Shakib is still their player and Rangpur’s interfere on that is not a legitimate one.
Meanwhile, the authority of Rangpur Riders has claimed that Mashrafe Bin Mortaza is not willing to be an icon player this time as he has already ended his T20 international career and at the verge of ending his glorious career. If that is true, then Shakib can play as their icon and both Mashrafe and Shakib can be the players of Rangpur Riders in BPL 2019. All in all, there is a high chance that we will see Shakib and Mashrafe playing for the same team in BPL 7.
