Jalal Yunus, chairman of the BCB’s cricket operations committee, said, “Shakib wrote a letter earlier (before the IPL auction). After talking to him, it was decided that he will play in the Sri Lanka series. Many people think that he has written a letter lately, but that is not the case. ‘

The world’s best all-rounder had applied for leave from Tests mainly to play in the IPL. But this time he did not get any team. Jalal Yunus said, “It was decided earlier that he would play in the Sri Lanka series. And will not play Test in South Africa. Because, there is IPL at that time. The final talks have not yet taken place, as a series is underway. I hope there will be discussions with the President after coming to Dhaka. We will sit down with him and decide. ‘
