BCB leave Mashrafe out of central contract
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) sat for their first meeting of the year on Sunday where they discussed the current affairs of Bangladesh cricket. They have also informed their decision regarding the Pakistan tour. . The team is set to travel to Pakistan next month, but they will only play the T20Is series for now.
BCB president Nazmul Hassan Papon told reporters that Mashrafe asked to be left out of the list in order to make a young talent in the side. The board also accepted his decision and left him out of the contract.
The 36-year old recently said in an interview that he doesn’t expect to be back into the side after his poor performance in the World Cup in England & Wales.
“It depends on selection. After taking just one wicket in eight matches I expect that I will not get into the side. This actually depends on the selectors. If the selectors decide to give me a chance then I will try my best but at this moment after taking just one wicket in eight matches, how can I say that I will be getting a chance to play? If it was someone else other than me then he would have been dropped much earlier,” he said.
