Dhaka Dynamites refuse to have any trouble on Shakib’s leave
The arrangement of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) this season has been undergoing a major turmoil. In the midst of conflicting franchises, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) announced the total extermination of franchises involvement and took the league under their own supervision.
One of the main reasons behind the ever growing unrest, according to reports revealed, was the movement of ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan from Dhaka Dynamites.
But in a statement on Saturday, Obaid Nizam, Dhaka Dynamites’ CEO, said that his franchise has no problem regarding Shakib Al Hasan’s joining in another franchise but they said it would be preferable had he (Shakib) informed the Dynamites’ authority earlier.
“Shakib has left, he is a great player. He gave his service for the past three years,” Nizam said as quoted by Cricbuzz.
“He has a special personality and is a very good cricketer. He is one of the best players I have seen playing for Bangladesh. If he wants to play in any other team, I am very transparent about this matter. If he goes to the other team and plays, I have no issues with it. He and any player can do that.
“But there are some guidelines and rules that we all should follow. Many franchisees have broken the rules and regulations earlier. [But] have we demanded something which was not in BPL’s guidelines?
Dynamites CEO also said they would be happy to join in the newly thought Bangabandhu T20 league if they will find the opportunity.
“There are many rumours taking place regarding BPL. First of all, we are so happy that BPL is not off and thanks to the board for that. Maybe we won’t be there, that’s fine but they are going to organize the tournament on Bangabandhu’s 100th birth anniversary.
“I think we can be an important part of this. If we have that opportunity we will definitely participate. Not only us, I think many of the franchisees are not happy about the fact that we are not going to sign the agreement this time,” he added.
