Sports. games. Mustafizur takes missed opportunities in his stride

Sports. games. INDIAN PREMIER LEAGUE 2020 The left-arm pacer was denied NoC for the IPL due to Bangladesh’s tour of Sri Lanka, which was eventually postponed © BCB Mustafizur Rahman said that BCB would have given him the No-Objection Certificate to participate in the Indian Premier League 2020 in the UAE, if the board knew about the postponement of the Sri Lanka tour. On Monday (September 28), Nazmul Hasan, BCB’s president, had asked Sri Lanka to reschedule the three-match Test series, as the board wasn’t willing to comply with the 14-day quarantine rule. For the pacer, cancellation of the Sri Lanka tour came as a double blow, considering that he wasn’t granted NoC to take part in the IPL due to national commitments. Incidentally, Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders were looking to sign the pace bowler. “It would have been great to play the Test series. Sri Lanka’s proposal to have us quarantined for 14 days didn’t seem possible for us,” said Mustafizur. ”You can’t sit in your room before such an important series, no matter how hard you train. BCB tried, but the 14-day quarantine is their law. I think we should respect it. “If the BCB knew that the Sri Lanka series would be postponed, they would have given me the NoC for IPL. But whatever happens, happens for the best. I may have earned BDT 1 crore had I played the IPL,” he added. The last time around when BCB decided to not give Mustafizur the NoC to take part in the Pakistan Super League in 2015-16, the board had compensated him with BDT Taka 30 Lakh. However, Akram Khan, BCB’s Cricket Operations Chairman, noted that there is ‘little’ chance of providing Mustafizur compensation for missing out on taking part in the IPL. “Because he had injury concerns, we did not allow him to go (PSL) and we tried to compensate him,” said BCB Cricket operations chairman Akram Khan. ”This time it’s a different matter. He was picked by a team in the PSL while the negotiation was in the preliminary stage (IPL), and it is a fact that no team has picked him. We have not given him NoC for national interest, so there is very little chance of giving him any compensation.” © Cricbuzz RELATED STORIES
