What is the reason for not buying Shakib?

What is the reason for not buying Shakib?

He set a new record yesterday. He holds the record for being the first cricketer to be named the best player in five consecutive Twenty20 matches. Among the non-Indian spinners-all-rounders, almost all of the world’s best stars have already been left out of different teams.

But nothing happened! No team has bid in the first round of auction for Bangladesh’s left-arm all-rounder. Shakib remained unsold!

Probably the main reason for Shakib to remain unsold is his skepticism about getting him in the entire IPL. Bangladesh national team has two series towards the beginning and end of IPL! One on South African soil, the other against Sri Lanka at home.

The start date of the IPL has not been officially announced yet, but it is expected to start on March 26. Bangladesh’s three-match ODI series against South Africa will start on March 16 and end on March 23. The two-Test series will start on March 31 and end on April 12, though there are rumors that Shakib will not play in the Test series.

After returning from South Africa, Bangladesh will play a two-Test series against Sri Lanka at home. The two Tests will be part of the World Test Championship in May. Then the last part of IPL will continue.

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) cricket management chief Jalal Yunus said two days ago that Shakib had informed the BCB that he would play in the Test series against Sri Lanka. But the BCB has informed the BCCI that Shakib will not be able to play in the IPL from May 8 to 23 if he wants to play in that series, according to Indian media reports.

That may be the reason why Shakib remained unsold in the end. If Shakib with a base price of Rs 2 crore is not available in many matches, then who can invest money behind him! The auctioneer had been looking at the teams for a long time after Shakib’s name came up in the IPL auction today, but no team had bid for Shakib.

But judging by the form, judging by the ‘profile’ of the players, there should not have been less interest around Shakib.

Shakib is in dazzling form with the bat. In the last five matches of Fortune Barisal in BPL, Shakib has scored 230 runs with three half centuries with the bat. His lowest score in these five matches is 36! And why only these five matches with the ball in hand, Shakib has not been wicketless in any match in BPL this time. He has taken 15 wickets in 9 matches.

However, Shakib has hardly been able to spread the light in the IPL. He has scored 47 runs in 6 matches in the last IPL and got 4 wickets.

On the one hand, when the fear of not getting Shakib in most of the matches, on the other hand, when the base price of Shakib is 20 million, in the ‘cost-benefit’ analysis, the decision to buy Shakib may have cost the franchises more than the benefits.

And go to see the player’s profile? There are few left-arm spinners at the moment, there is little doubt that Shakib is the best among them. And go as a spinner-all-rounder? Rashid Khan, Moin Ali, Sunil Narain have already got the team. In some cases, the previous team has retained him, so the new IPL franchise has pulled someone. Shakib was the most famous spinner-all-rounder in the auction.

But that Shakib did not get the team. But shortly after Shakib, the Sri Lankan all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga, who was auctioned off, got into a fight. The auction of IPL, which has been postponed for the time being due to the sudden loss of consciousness of the auctioneer, was still going on at the time of this nightmare gift. The price of Hasaranga with a base price of Rs 1 crore had already exceeded Rs 10 crore! After the auction started again at 4 pm Bangladesh time, where does the price of Hasaranga go, who knows!

If there was no doubt about Shakib’s game, his price would have been quite high!
