Shakib Al Hasan Will Not Play in the Rest of the PSL 2021
The Dhaka Premier League (DPL) will start on May 31 (Monday) with a two-point delay due to the corona epidemic. World-class all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has decided not to play in the Pakistan Super League PSL 2021 to take part in the highest edition of domestic limited overs cricket.
Due to the epidemic, the 6th edition of PSL stopped in the middle of March. The Pakistan Cricket Board wants to start the rest of the suspended PSL on June 1 (Tuesday). Shakib is talking about playing for Lahore Calendars in this part of PSL. His national teammate Mahmudullah is also scheduled to play for Riyadh’s Multan Sultans and Liton Das for the Karachi Kings.
However, as the Dhaka Premier League started at the same time, Shakib Al Hasan has chosen the event of the domestic league. Mohammedan Sporting Club official Tariqul Islam Titu confirmed the information. The club authorities have written a letter to the Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis stating that Shakib wants to play for Mohammedan this time.
“We have submitted a letter signed by Shakib to CCDM. It says he is interested in participating in DPL. He does not want to play in PSL but wants to play in DPL. No team could take him due to ban in 2019-20 season. Now Shakib,” he told a news outlet. He can play for any team and we have shown interest in him. “
The DPL event is starting anew on May 31 (Monday). Due to time constraints, this year’s event will be in T20 format instead of ODI format. Earlier, the league was postponed twice due to coronavirus.
It is learned that although Shakib is not interested in playing PSL, Mahmudullah and Liton are interested in playing PSL. However, there are rumors that the BCB will not give them permission to play in the PSL.
Earlier, Shakib Al Hasan left Bangladesh to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in preparation for the T20 World Cup. He has been the victim of a lot of criticism. However, Shakib Al Hasan has decided to play in the DPL instead of playing in the PSL as the DPL is in T20 format this time.
