Bangladesh Has Awarded Their Players With Huge Sum Of Money Who Have Skipped IPL For Their National Team

It’s great to hear that the Bangladesh Cricket Board has rewarded three players with a total of $65,000 for prioritizing international matches over the Indian Premier League (IPL). The players who received the reward are Shakib Al Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, and Liton Das.

Jalal Yunus, the cricket operations chief of the Bangladesh Cricket Board, mentioned that this gesture is a small token of appreciation for the players. He stated that the players did not demand money, but the board felt they deserved to be rewarded. The board believes that playing for the Bangladesh national team is of utmost importance and should be unconditional.

Shakib Al Hasan was bought by the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the IPL but opted out of the tournament. Liton Das, after fulfilling his national duties, joined KKR and played one game for the team before returning to Bangladesh.

Taskin Ahmed was contacted to replace one of the injured players in the IPL, but he declined the opportunity, prioritizing his commitments to the Bangladesh national team instead.

This decision by the Bangladesh Cricket Board and the players involved reflects their dedication to representing their country and prioritizing national duties over individual financial gains.
