There will be a further jolt for IPL 2021 2nd phase in UAE as Bangladesh board President Nazmul Hassan. Has categorically refused to grant NOC to both Shakib Al Hassan and Mustafizur Rahman for playing the remainder of the IPL 2021 in the UAE.
The BCB President cited the reasons as other international commitments for Bangladesh ahead of the T20I World cup. As the main reason for not allowing the NOC to the duo, both of whom are vital players for their respective franchises.
Shakib and Mustafizur will not be given NOC to participate in the remainder of IPL 2021 by BCB. With England earlier withdrawing their players from IPL. KKR will be badly hit since after Eoin Morgan, they will be losing Shakib who would have played a vital role for the team in the absence of Morgan. Also for KKR, there are potential reports of Pat Cummins’ unavailability.
Rajasthan Royals are already reeling due to the withdrawal of all the England players. Now with Mustafizur’s unavailability, they will be badly impacted in the bowling as the “Fizz” was a vital cog in their wheels. The franchisee will have to be on the lookout for major replacements.
After England and Bangladesh have spelt out their intentions, all eyes will now be on Cricket Australia. As to what they decide on their IPL players. All of whom have just returned to their homes just a couple of days ago. After camping in the Maldives for 11 days. And in strict quarantine for 14 days away from family after reaching Australia.
