AFC praises and express gratitude to Shakib Al Hasan!


CRICDOT DESK : If anyone sees the jersey of Afghanistan in Bangladesh tour and thinks that the team is Fortune Barisal of BPL, then don’t make a big mistake. Because ‘Monarch Mart’ written in Bengali on the chest of Rashid-Mujib-Nabi’s jersey this time.

This Monarch Mart was also the Gold Sponsor of Fortune Barisal. The writing on their jerseys was enlarged. It is learned that Monarch Mart is the team sponsor of the Afghanistan team in this series. The chairman of this organization is Bangladesh cricket team all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.

The matter is being discussed in the cricket court. Cricket and cricketers should be commended for standing by for the expansion of business. However, many have taken a negative view on the issue. Their question: to stand by the side of the cricketers, why Shakib’s organization did not sponsor the jersey of Bangladesh? Why choose Afghanistan?

Menhaj Raj, deputy head of the cricket management department of the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) in Chittagong, replied to this.

In his commentary, Shakib has done a commendable job. He stands by the financially indigent Afghanistan Cricket Board. Like his country’s stars Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan, Shakib has come forward with the help of ACB.

Menhaj Raj said, “Afghanistan’s cricket board is suffering from financial crisis. This is our big problem. The cricketers there are standing by the side of their country’s board in any way they can, taking Afghanistan cricket forward. It is a matter of great pride for us. I thank Shakib that an organization of world class cricketers like him has been the patron of our team. ‘
