CRICDOT DESK : BPL means a lot of issues outside the game. Mehedi Hasan Miraj, all-rounder of Chittagong Challengers, spread that heat in Bangabandhu BPL. He threatened to withdraw from the tournament after being removed from the captaincy. Yesterday afternoon, he left the hotel with his wife and son to break the biosecure bubble and return to Dhaka. Before getting into the car, a representative of the franchise stopped Miraj from returning to Dhaka.

The situation became somewhat normal after the intervention of BCB. As per Miraj’s request, Chittagong Challengers Chief Operating Officer (COO) Yasir Alam has been removed from the team. Ismail Haider Mallick, member secretary of the BPL Governing Council, said Miraj would play in the remaining matches of the tournament. It has also been confirmed from the Chittagong franchise that Miraj is staying with the team. However, he is not getting back the captaincy. Although the BCB has now accepted his unprofessional attitude, it has decided not to indulge in the future.

Naeem Islam led Chittagong Challengers against Sylhet Sunrisers on Saturday. Mirage told the media that he could announce three hours before the match that he was no longer the captain. “It doesn’t matter if you are the captain or not,” he said. But tell me why three hours before the match! I also have a reputation. That COO Yasir- that Kalpit, if he is there, I will not play. He does everything. The owners of the franchise are fine. Yasir misunderstands the owners and does everything. ‘

Miraj informed BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury over phone on Saturday night. Board officials spoke with the franchisee and instructed them to resolve the matter. The franchisee did not want to accept Mirage’s stubbornness. They are flexible in the end because of the BCB. BPL Governing Council member secretary Mallick spoke on the phone on Saturday night and asked to play in the tournament. But Miraj told the media yesterday that he will not play in the BPL for Chittagong anymore. Will return to Dhaka in the afternoon. BCB officials could not convince him either.

In the end, Miraj calmed down as COO Yasir was removed. When contacted about this, Yasir said, “I stayed out either in the interest of the party or not. I want Miraj to play. ‘ Miraj’s ‘dominating character’ has caused problems in the Dhaka Premier League as well. There are allegations that the big parties do not want to take him now.

A Chittagong Challengers cricketer, who did not want to be named, reacted angrily to Miraj’s play. “There is a reason why the captaincy has changed,” he said. Mirage does not want to implement the team’s plan in general. He wants to play normal cricket in the power play and score runs at the end. Jacques will open himself by playing down. The coach makes one plan, the other on the field. The team has to think first. If you think of yourself without doing that, the management will remove you. He is definitely a very good player. Essential for the team. What he did was bad for himself, the team and the BPL. ‘
