Big Loss For KKR, Star All-Rounder Took Out His Name From IPL 2023

The new season of the Indian Premier League has been nothing special for the Kolkata Knight Riders so far. Before the start of the tournament, the captain of the team, Shreyas Iyer, got injured and got out. The team’s most experienced player has withdrawn, refusing to come to India and play in the tournament. The Bangladeshi veteran all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has withdrawn his name from the Indian Premier League for personal reasons.

Kolkata had named Shakib for 1.5 crores. According to the report, Shakib has officially informed the franchise. Shakib has cited international commitments and personal matters as the reason for this.

There was earlier news about Shakib that the franchise has released him, but Shakib himself has decided to stay out. Kolkata is already missing Shreyas Iyer; in such a situation, Shakib will not be there, and the team will miss him. His teammate Liton Das, however, will join Kolkata a few days later.

According to the rules, no franchise can release a player after buying them in the auction. Shakib can turn the tide of the match with his bat and excellent spin.

In their first match, Kolkata, who lost to Punjab, has to play their next match on April 6 against Royal Challengers Bangalore, captained by Faf du Plessis.

Shakib Al Hasan is the second player from Bangladesh about whom such news has come to the fore. Earlier, the news of Liton Das being out of the tournament also came to the fore.

The Kolkata team had attached Shakib with the team by giving a base price of 1.5 crores. All Bangladesh players have been asked to be available to play the match on behalf of the team. It is being told that the Bangladesh Cricket Board has not permitted the players to play all the matches in the IPL. The players selected in the series against Ireland have been asked to stay with the team.
