Mushfiqur becomes highest paid cricketer in DPL
Bangladesh star wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim is getting the highest wages in the upcoming Dhaka Premier League (DPL). It is reported that Abahani has prepared talks with Mushfiq at Tk 65 lakh.
Shakib Al Hasan is one of the best in the national team jersey. Shakib is also the posterboy of Bangladesh in international cricket. However, his proportion of success in domestic cricket is less. However, for this, in domestic cricket, especially in Dhaka club cricket, his demand is low- that’s not the thing, his demand has been higher in every season.
Every year, clubs become interested in getting Shakib. Shakib was the highest paid cricketer most of the times, having played in the Premier League for the last 10 years. But this time, Shakib is not in the Premier League. He has been out off the field on the cusp of an ICC suspension.
Now, Mushfiqur Rahim will get the highest wages in lieu of that. According to sources at the high level of Abahani, they are going to take Mushfiqur Rahim into the squad for Tk 65 lakh. An agreement has been reached with him. A large number of advances have also been given.
Mushfiqur will play for Abahani for the first time in his domestic career. Other star cricketers like- Mashrafe bin Mortaza, Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah Riyad will get over Tk 50 lakh. On the other hand, some of the cricketers including Liton Das and Soumya Sarkar will get over Tk. 40 lakh.
