Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan though intended to join the newest edition of the Australian Twenty20 competition Big Bash League, Cricket Australia shut the doors on him for his past charges of corruption.
As Shakib’s one-year sanction from cricket for not complying with ICC's rules and regulations regarding corrupt activities ended on October 29, the all-rounder is now free to take part in competitive cricket.
The 33-year-old, reportedly, put his name for the BBL, but CA didn't allow him to take part.
The cricketer remains the only cricketer from Bangladesh to play in BBL, previously playing for Adelaide Strikers in 2013-14 and for Melbourne Renegades in 2014-15.
The all-rounder was also reportedly offered to play for Multan Sultans in the play-off stage of the Pakistan Super League in place of COVID-19 infected Mahmudullah but couldn’t take part as his name was not in the players’ draft from the beginning.
He is set to play for the Gemcon Khulna in the upcoming Bangabandhu Twenty20 Cup.
