After Afghanistan defeated Bangladesh within the one-off Check not too long ago, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) applied a rule underneath which each Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) workforce should embrace at the least one leg-spinner of their taking part in eleven. The BCB even suspended head coaches of two groups for not following the order. After taking place to Afghanistan, specialists had stated that Bangladesh batsmen’s lack of follow towards wrist spinners resulted of their loss.
Nevertheless, the brand new ruling has not gone down effectively with the Check and T20 captain of Bangladesh, Shakib-Al-Hasan, who feels this rule will suppress the cricketers.
“For thus a few years we could not choose a leg-spinner for the senior workforce, however abruptly we made plans to incorporate seven legspinners within the BPL. This resolution does come as a little bit of a shock, however I’d nonetheless state that the board has taken a choice that it thinks is nice.
“I believe that leg-spinners ought to bowl a number of overs in first-class cricket to achieve confidence and consistency. The BPL is an international-standard aggressive event the place you’ll face eventualities that you’re prone to face in worldwide cricket. You share the dressing room with abroad cricketers. It isn’t the place to make a participant,” Shakib was quoted as saying by Bengali day by day Samakal.
“Solely specializing in the nationwide workforce should not be the principle job of the organisers. Locations like Chittagong, Rajshahi, Khulna and Sylhet ought to have a correct health club, working and indoor services. You can’t bat for greater than 15 minutes within the Mirpur indoor services, as a result of it will get so sizzling.
“They have not put in ACs even after being advised for 10 years. It’s fairly disappointing, particularly after we see indoors in different nations which have clear lighting and ACs. Additionally, first-class match charges are very unacceptable,” he added.
“It’s a very small quantity for a cricketer to take care of the minimal lifestyle in Bangladesh. Issues are getting costlier. Authorities officers get increments yearly, however we see that it’s the identical for us each time. It even will get diminished. BPL and DPL are massive examples of this.
“I at all times get a sense that cricketers in our nation are being suppressed. This isn’t proper. Everybody ought to have equal alternative. A participant ought to be left to earn what he feels he deserves. If the workforce would not wish to take the participant at that fee, the participant will cope with it. However to cease him from freely naming his value just isn’t proper,” Shakid stated.
