The team is in Sylhet, Shakib in Dhaka

Shakib Al Hasan’s team Walton Central Zone has reached the final of the Bangladesh Cricket League (BCL) ODI Edition Independence Cup or Independent Cup with two wins in a row.

However, even though the team reached the final, there was uncertainty about getting the captain in the title match. Because Shakib has already come to Dhaka from Sylhet. The Tiger all-rounder boarded a flight to Dhaka on Tuesday (January 11) leaving the tournament unfinished.

It is learned that Shakib is scheduled to attend a function in Dhaka on January 14. And so there is a fear about the game in the next match of Shakib. No specific statement was received from Shakib’s party. They are also not sure about Shakib’s game.

In the first match of the Independence Cup, he scored 35 runs off 57 balls with two boundaries. The ball was brighter in hand. Shakib bowled 10 overs for 2 wickets and gave only 24 runs.

Meanwhile, former national team cricketer Mohammad Ashraful failed for the second time in the current tournament on Tuesday (January 11). This time ODI captain Tamim Iqbal also joined him.

Supporters have always complained that the board has done injustice by not giving Ashraful another chance in the national team. Besides, his fans are also angry over not getting a team in the upcoming BPL. But this batsman is not able to prove his ability at once in the field performance. In the first match of the Independence Cup, he returned to the dressing room with zero runs.

This time in the second match also slow batting seemed to increase the annoyance. On Tuesday, BCB spent 30 balls to open the run account to bat against the South! He played 30 balls and scored one run. Surprisingly, this is what happened in Sylhet. In the end, before being bowled by Nasum, he played 56 balls and scored 15 runs.

Meanwhile, Tamim Iqbal was not in the squad for the first match of the Independence Cup. There was uncertainty about his game in the tournament. However, Tamim Iqbal, who has been out of the national team for a long time, came on the field for Eastern on Tuesday (January 11), dispelling all speculations.

However, he is disappointed today. He was dismissed for just 9 runs off 26 balls. A few days ago, while playing in the Everest Premier League of Nepal, Ranakhara suffered. That circle of failure seems to be getting longer. Imrul Kayes, who has been out of the national team for a long time, has set the tone on the day of Ashraful-Tamim’s failure. In the procession of batsmen coming and going on one side, the captain of the eastern region has kept the other end in front.

Despite crossing the half-century milestone, his innings finally came to a halt with a personal 69. Nahidul had five fours and a six in his 69-run innings before being bowled out.
