Shakib replies opposite of Papon regarding Protea series
CRICDOT DESK : Shakib Al Hasan’s tour of South Africa is no longer the fog created by the Test match. Shakib did not want to play Test in the upcoming tour to play in IPL. But he did not get a team in IPL. BCB president Nazmul Islam Papon commented positively on whether Shakib would play Tests under the changed circumstances.
But less than 24 hours later, Shakib said, he will inform about it in time. Before the Proteas tour, Shakib has played in only 6 out of 26 Tests in Bangladesh. Shakib was present at a product promotion event in the capital on Tuesday. Journalists there asked him if he would play a Test in South Africa. In reply Shakib said, ‘You want to know (whether I will play) …. and you will be informed. ‘
Earlier on Monday, BCB president Nazmul Hasan Papon said, ‘Yes. He is going to play ODI. Don’t play Tests! What did he say? Will you leave? He will play. My idea will play. Listen, today at the end of the game there was a talk from afar. I can’t go near. I told him that he had come from South Africa to play a Test and was talking to you. He laughed a little and said, whatever you say. I mean he’s going to play. ‘
