BCB President Nazmul Hasan welcomed the desire of the experienced cricketers of the Bangladesh team to play selectively. If someone does not want to play in any version, then the board will not be pressured to play. However, the cricket board will not sit still if it is too late to decide which version a cricketer wants to play. According to Nazmul Hasan, BCB is ready to go ahead without experienced players in the interest of the team. [ The BCB president is in the fog with Shakib ]
Nazmul Hasan had a meeting with national team coaching staff and Test captain Mominul Haque at a hotel in the capital today ahead of the two-Test series against Sri Lanka. He told reporters at the end of the meeting, “You will see a lot of good Test players concentrating on the T20s, not doing well in the Tests, then slowly moving away.” This is very normal. I don’t see any problem. We don’t want our players to be upset. Let them play with a smile, let them decide for themselves. The sooner they can make their own decision, the better. If he doesn’t decide, we have to make a decision. ”
In this case, Nazmul Hasan has given the example of Mahmudullah and Tamim. Mahmudullah retired from Test cricket last year to focus on being white. Tamim Iqbal is not playing T20. Mushfiqur Rahim has been playing in three editions so far. Shakib Al Hasan is playing in all versions even though he has taken a break. There is no alternative to this all-rounder in Bangladesh team. So the BCB is looking at Shakib’s case a little differently.
Nazmul Hasan was saying, ‘They have nothing in common with Shakib. Everyone in the team wants him. But we don’t know which Shakib will play and which will not. When I talk to him, I think he wants to play. When it comes to the game again, there are problems. ‘
The BCB president therefore left the decision to the players, saying, “I think it is better for the players to make this decision. It is better to sit down with the board and make a decision than not in the media. That is what happens in foreign countries. ‘
Recently, there has been a lot of talk about Mostafizur Rahman not playing Tests. The name of the left-arm pacer is not in the current central contract of the red ball. But in South Africa, Taskin Ahmed and Shariful Islam got injured and Bangladesh team was in pacer crisis in Tests. The team management has been crying for Mostafiz, who is on leave for IPL.
Regarding Mostafiz, the BCB president said, “Just as a player may want to play selectively, we can play anyone we want, but not again.” There is no such thing as everyone has to play. However, I think there is no player among those who are playing now, who will not play if the country needs. Even then, if anyone is an exception, my idea is wrong. ‘
