Yet another Indian cricketer is coming to play in the ongoing Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League (DPL). With the process of acquiring UK Visa for going to play in the Minor County Cricket League becoming more difficult than ever, DPL is gradually turning out to be the final destination of most of the Indian cricketers who are not featuring in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The latest inclusion to the list of Indian players to take part in DPL is Abhinav Mukund. Mukund is comparatively a more high-profile player than the rest of the Indian players in DPL, as he is a current Test player of Indian cricket team. Even Mukund also played in the recently concluded Test series against Australia. [ICC reveals CT 2017 warm-up fixtures]
Mukund, who made his Test debut back in the 2011 against West Indies, has so far played 6 Tests for India, with his last one coming in March this year against Australia in Bangalore.
That the 27-year-old cricketer is going to play for Mohammedan Sporting Club from the fourth round of DPL has been confirmed by a higher official of the club on Wednesday (April 19).
Most of the batsmen in Mohammedan’s batting line-up are right handed. Apart from Tamim Iqbal and Mehedi Hasan Miraz, no other batsman could do well with the bat in hand. And to add to the misery, the national cricketers will soon leave for England. So the club is now determined to fill in the void of quality batsmen, and that’s the reason behind appointing the specialist batsman from Tamil Nadu into the squad.
