We all want Shakib to play in all 3 formats: Sujon
CRICDOT DESK : Bangladesh’s largest advertisement in world cricket Shakib Al Hasan is always round the corner with controversy and speculation. Sometimes due to injury, sometimes due to family reasons, sometimes Shakib Al Hasan refrained from playing for the national team for franchise based tournaments.
The former national team captain has come under fire for his recent absence from Test matches. There are rumors in the cricket field that Shakib does not want to play Test matches as a standard of cricket. Many cricket analysts say that Shakib played matches selectively.
However, the team director of the national team Khaled Mahmud Sujon says differently. He said Shakib plays the most cricket among the cricketers of our country. Bio-safety zone factor but much more for him. Of course we all want Shakib to play three formats.
Former national team captain Sujon also said, “If we sit down with Shakib, if we talk a little, no tours are important or there are no points in Test championship or no points in ODIs – it is not a problem if we give him a break in these.”
Understanding the importance of match or series, playing Sujon, Sujon further said, if Shakib plays our main matches, then it is very good. I have to sit with Shakib. He never said he would not play. He said maybe he will not play this series or this match. I think there is a difference in our communication.
