Bangladeshi Players Opt Out Of CPL

Three of Bangladeshi top players have opted out of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) this season.

The players Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah, and Mustafizur Rahman have turned down the opportunity to play because of the fear of the COVID-19.

The players opined that it was not prudent to travel to the West Indies in what they termed “this difficult situation of the pandemic.”

Both Tamim and Mahmudullah played in previous editions of the CPL, with the latter representing the Jamaica Tallawahs, while Tamim played for the St Lucia Zouks.

The six-team tournament is scheduled to run from August 18 to September 10.
