DHAKA, Bangladesh – Shakib claimed that if given the chance, he would have ensured that the player draft took place on time and that the schedule didn’t interfere with those of other leagues.
Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan harshly criticized the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) two years before the commencement of the new cricket season, criticizing the lack of rapid player drafting and bad scheduling that results in clashes with other T20 leagues.
The gifted athlete claimed he would have made sure the player draft happened on time and that the schedule avoided conflicts with other leagues.
Nayak is a movie that you must have seen. If it were up to me, the League would have happened at a pointless point in the year, and the player draft and auction would have ended promptly.
The player draft wasn’t held until November 23 because the BPL took its time selecting owners for each of the seven franchises. During this period, the bulk of the top athletes were able to take part in SA20 in South Africa and ILT20 in the United Arab Emirates. Even BPL signees won’t be available for the entire season, according to Bangladesh’s top all-rounder.
Nobody really knows how long they will be approachable, according to Shakib. “Nothing appears to be in our way if we have the resolve to do it (to rectify things).” If we were prepared, the DRS, the draft, the auction, or the teams could all be determined two months in advance, he said.
The all-rounder claimed that the Dhaka Premier League (DPL), the nation’s local ODI competition that has been going on for almost fifty years, may be superior to the BPL.
“It’s a challenging situation. Maybe our DPL is more structured. The group can be put together in advance. Who will be on their team is known to them. Every DPL team is informed of who will play where for the forthcoming season,” claims Shakib.
“The competition started on January 6th, and before that, everyone was working separately. People just need to be more intentional about understanding what really happens in our League,” he said. Shakib questioned the absence of BPL marketing in Bangladesh, the country with the most cricket fans.
Cricket is obviously quite popular in our nation, for a long time now, even in far flung locations. We never built a market, but it would have been massive had we been able to add value to it. “
He stated, “Considering that cricket is a very popular sport in a country with between 106 and 108 million people, “I think there must be a good market for it here.”
The league’s performances, in Shakib’s opinion, don’t have the same significance as those in the Pakistan Super League or the Caribbean Premier League.
Unrestricted players perform well in the PSL or CPL, they are called up for the national squad, but not when they play in the BPL. They provide a list of countries where the League is televised, but nobody actually watches it the way it ought to be, he laments, “there hasn’t been any growth at all for a while.”
On Shakib Al Hasan
After playing well in the lone Test match against India, Shakib had an amazing trip to Sri Lanka. Shakib scored his fifth Test century in Bangladesh’s historic 100th Test match. The wicket was crucial to Bangladesh’s triumph and the series’ 1-1 tie. He was named Series Man of the Series for his 162 runs and 9 wickets. Because of his efforts on all fronts, Bangladesh was able to tie the T20I series at one game apiece. He was the best player in the shortest format. Following Mortaza’s statement that he would be quitting the 20-over competition, the BCB chose Shakib as the T20I captain.
Shakib Al Hasan is without a doubt the most well-known cricketer to have ever represented Bangladesh. Shakib, a genuine all-rounder, is an essential part of Bangladesh’s starting lineup. Over the years, he has consistently contributed for his nation. Shakib first gained popularity when he represented a number of towns close to his homeland of Magura in cricket.
