ICC ranking says, Sakib is number one all rounder in the world now. Not only that he was the ‘man of the tournament’ in the recent Asia cup. But perhaps Kolkata night riders’ team management understands cricket bit more. They decided to go with a South African pacer in the match against Delhi Daredevils, who was the most expensive player in that match.
Cricket analysts were surprised to see this decision. Even Indian media is criticizing the team management. They opine that if Sakib was in the main eleven Kolkata Night Riders’ would not loose.
Many cricket fans of Kolkata are suggesting to include Sakib in the next match.
The Indian cricket league has exempted Pakistani players, many says that was a political decision. Now a Bangladeshi world class player is exempted from the main eleven.
This year Tamim Iqbal is also playing in the Indian premier league. Many Bangladeshis will keep eye on the IPL especially to see their performance.
