Bangladeshi players are not included in the upcoming Pakistan Super League as they will be unavailable for the tournament due to their home series against Zimbabwe.

Usually Bangladeshi players star in PSL but this time there will be no Bangladeshi in PSL as they will be busy playing against Zimbabwe during the same time. As many as 23 players’ name was listed in the PSL draft for this year’s auction but teams didn’t show any interest in any Bangladeshi players after knowing about their unavailability.

Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah Riyad, and Mustafizur Rahman and Mohammed Saifuddin were placed in gold category for the auction.

Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah Riyad had all played PSL before.

No team from the newly introduced 100-ball cricket by England had shown any interest in Bangladeshi players as well.

Bangladesh’s recent record in Twenty20 cricket is not noteworthy and some of the seasoned campaigner of Tigers used to play PSL to earn much needed experience excel in the shortest format.
