Leg spinners are performing well in T20s worldwide. But, in Bangladesh leg spinners are not welcomed most of the time. Aminul Islam Biplob went with the World Cup Squad. But, he was sent back prior the beginning of the tournament.
Reason Biplob was not introduce early 
Many words been said on the issue of keeping a leggie in the Bangladesh side. Well, the tigers included Biplob eventually. But, his match ended with 2 deliveries and he came to bowl when visiting Pakistan required 2 runs!
Even, in a situation like that Bangladesh skipper didn’t call Biplob to bowl. It was surprising. If a leg spinner doesn’t get enough ball to bowl, why is he there?
Mahmudullah answered — Fakhar and Khushdil both are left handed that was the reason. In modern day cricket there is a term called ‘match ups’. Due to that issue in many occasions a bowler get deprived of his quota.
Mahmudullah told — “had a plan to give him the ball. I had to bowl because of two left handers were at the crease.”
Bangladesh played with 5 genuine bowlers in this match. Mahedi, Taskin, Mustafiz, Shoriful — all of them bowled their 4 overs. But, Biplob bowled 2 balls. While tiger skipper bowled 3 overs in the match.
Whereas few days back, Chief selector stated that Bangladesh will look forward to start a new era of leg spin by Biplob. Reality was opposite. Biplob didn’t get enough opportunity to bowl.
Earlier, Bangladesh had 127 runs for on the board to defend. The Tigers started well with the ball. Took 4 wickets of the visiting for 24!
