Comilla Victorians confirms Imrul Kayes as Captain
CRICDOT DESK : The Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) is starting from Friday (January 21). Comilla Victorians have chosen Imrul Kayes as the captain of that tournament. The franchise authorities confirmed the matter in a press release.
Giving leadership is not new to Kayes. Comilla was captained by former Australia captain Steve Smith in the 2019 BPL. However, as Smith returned to the country midway through the tournament due to injury, the responsibility of leadership fell on Kayes. Star cricketers like Tamim Iqbal played under his leadership.
Comilla Victorians became the champions under the leadership of Imrul Kayes. They won the title by defeating Dhaka Diamonds in the final.
This time in Comilla Victorians there is no Panchpandab but there are stars like Faf du Plessis, Sunil Narine, Moin Ali. Imrul will lead them. Imrul Kayes’ team will face Sylhet Sunrisers in their first match of the tournament on January 22. The match will start at 12:30 pm at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur.
