Uncertainity over Razzak
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) rejected the second appeal by Biman to allow left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak play for them in the ongoing Premier Cricket League.
"Biman's second appeal was also rejected, so Razzak is now free to play for any team who have not completed the number of players they can take from the national pool," informed Mostafa Kabir, member secretary of Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis (CCDM).
Razzak has been treated as a pool player after the Tigers left-arm spinner's action was cleared by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday.
Mohammedan have been showing interest in Razzak to complete their quota of the national pool but Biman refused to release the spinner, who had been paid to sign for the national airliners despite being suspended at the time of the transfers for illegal action.
Razzak, permitted to bowl in the Twenty20 League, was later brought under the pool as Biman had four pool players instead of the maximum three. Other clubs had opposed Razzak's playing for the national flag carrier.
"I am looking forward to play in the league but I am yet to hear anything from the board," commented Razzak yesterday.
