Riders proud to be playing without Pak players

Rangpur Riders have done a great job by playing cricket without any Pakistani players in the BPL T20 tournament in the month of victory.

On December 16, 1971, Bangladesh achieved victory after nine months of armed struggle against the Pakistani occupation forces. People of Bangladesh have great respect for this month.

All the BPL teams, including Comilla Victorians, have hired Pakistani players for the tournament, but Rangpur Riders are an exception.

Pakistani cricketers Shoaib Malik and Hasan Ali played for Comilla Victorians in a match against Rangpur Riders on Monday. Riders outclassed Victorians in the encounter.

Winning the match without any Pakistani player in the month of victory has put Rangpur Riders in a respectable position. This has created an additional appeal to the fans of Rangpur Riders as well as people of the country.
