After Afghanistan defeated Bangladesh within the one-off Test not too long ago, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) carried out a rule below which each Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) staff should embrace a minimum of 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, consultants had mentioned that Bangladesh batsmen’s lack of observe towards wrist spinners resulted of their loss.
However, the brand new ruling has not gone down properly with the Test and T20 captain of Bangladesh, Shakib-Al-Hasan, who feels this rule will suppress the cricketers.
“For so a few years we could not choose a leg-spinner for the senior staff, however out of the blue we made plans to incorporate seven legspinners within the BPL. This resolution does come as a little bit of a shock, however I would nonetheless state that the board has taken a call that it thinks is nice.
“I suppose that leg-spinners ought to bowl a whole lot of overs in first-class cricket to achieve confidence and consistency. The BPL is an international-standard aggressive event the place you’ll face situations 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 every day Samakal.
“Only specializing in the nationwide staff should not be the principle job of the organisers. Places like Chittagong, Rajshahi, Khulna and Sylhet ought to have a correct fitness center, working and indoor amenities. You can’t bat for greater than 15 minutes within the Mirpur indoor amenities, as a result of it will get so scorching.
“They haven’t installed ACs even after being told for 10 years. It is quite disappointing, especially when we see indoors in other countries that have clear lighting and ACs. Also, first-class match fees are very unacceptable,” he added.
“It is a really small quantity for a cricketer to take care of the minimal lifestyle in Bangladesh. Things are getting costlier. Government officers get increments yearly, however we see that it’s the similar for us each time. It even will get diminished. BPL and DPL are large examples of this.
“I at all times get a sense that cricketers in our nation are being suppressed. This isn’t proper. Everyone ought to have equal alternative. A participant must be left to earn what he feels he deserves. If the staff would not wish to take the participant at that fee, the participant will cope with it. But to cease him from freely naming his value isn’t proper,” Shakid mentioned.
