Dhaka: Bangladesh fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman is reprimanded for not playing in the Indian Premier League after the national team’s tour of Sri Lanka was canceled due to the corona virus epidemic and lost its earnings. Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Chairman Najmul Hasan asked Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) to re-prepare the schedule of the proposed 3-match Test series next month as the board pandemic to obey the 14-day quarantine rule Was not ready

Mustafizur said, ‘It would have been wonderful to play in the Test series. Sri Lanka’s proposal to keep us in quarantine for 14 days was not possible for us to accept. You cannot sit in a room before such an important series, no matter how hard you train. BCB tried but the 14-day quarantine is their rule. I think we should respect it.
Mustafizur said, “If the BCB had known that the tour of Sri Lanka would be postponed, they would have given me a No Objection Certificate for the IPL. But whatever happens is for good. If I could have earned one crore Bangladesh for playing IPL. Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders had expressed a desire to buy him but due to national commitments he was not given NOC to play in the IPL.
The BCB had earlier refused to give Mustafizur an NOC to play in the Pakistan Super League in 2015-16 due to injury concerns. The board had then given him 30 lakhs as compensation. However, BCB’s cricket operations chairman Akram Khan has made it clear that this time he will not be given any compensation.
