Imrul Kayes still not considered: selector panel
CRICDOT DESK : What is the name of the most neglected cricketer in Bangladesh cricket? Imrul Kayes’ name will probably come first in the answer. Despite performing much worse than the performance he was left out of, many have been getting opportunities in the national team for a long time. In hindsight, it seems that Imrul is not on the electorate’s list for some unknown reason.
That seems to be the hint in the voice of national team selector Abdur Razzak. Imrul Kayes has played great in the latest BCL ODI tournament. In every match, the flower of run has blossomed in his bat. Which is maintained even in the ongoing BPL. Imrul scored an unbeaten 61 in the opening match against Chittagong Challengers for Comilla Victorians. His team also won easily. He also batted well in the previous match.
On the other hand, Bangladesh has been suffering from opening problems in T20 for a long time due to the absence of Tamim Iqbal. The selectors are not able to solve it in any way. Ahead is the T20 series against Afghanistan at home. That is why the opening pair is now under discussion before the announcement of the team. Because, those who are considered as openers don’t have runs at bat now. In such a situation, some people are proposing the name of Imrul Kayes as an alternative.
Selector Abdur Razzak spoke to reporters on Sunday (February 8th). In this case, the issue of Imrul Kayes came up, in fact, he said, there is no chance to consider him in an innings. The selector thinks that it is not right to make a fuss over the issue.
Abdur Razzak said, “The team will be formed based on performance. It is not right to jump on the bandwagon of those who do not perform. When I talk about Imrul, I will say that he played the last match well. However, it would not be right to say that it is performing. He hasn’t played well for a long time, if you think about the National League, but not up to the mark. ‘
