Shakib Al Hasan is not playing in IPL this time. The matter was confirmed yesterday evening. This is one of the best all-rounders in the world who was not sold in the first IPL auction. His name was also called on the second day yesterday, but no party showed interest. The matter has surprised many. Especially judging by his present form. His experience and record in T20 cricket, such as not having a team in franchise cricket, is quite unexpected. Shakib’s not getting a team in the IPL is now being discussed on social media.
Shakib Al Hasan has twice been named in the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction in the last two days. No one from the 10 franchises has ever shown interest in him. Since then, there has been a lot of discussion and criticism. The question arose as to whether Shakib’s IPL career was over or not.
In the midst of discussion and criticism, the post of Shakib’s wife Umme Al Hasan has given another dimension to the issue. Shishir wrote that even though no team had taken him in the auction, the two IPL teams had contacted Shakib directly. They wanted to know if Shakib could play for them all season! ‘
Shishir thinks that it is not right that his IPL career is over because Shakib did not get a team in IPL. He could not have been in the series against Sri Lanka if he had got the team. Shishir raised the question, whether everyone would call him a ‘traitor’ then, ‘Not getting a team in IPL is not a big deal. Didn’t get it this time, will get it next year. If he got the team, he would have missed the series against Sri Lanka. Did everyone say the same thing then? Did you make him a traitor? Sorry for the inconvenience! ‘
Shakib is often criticized for wanting to play in the IPL instead of playing for the country. Shishir has raised that issue in his post. Earlier, Shakib also played for Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad. He also has the experience to win the title for Kolkata.
