Soumya , Mithun denied NOCs for APL

  • Print



The Bangladesh Cricket Board said that it is not going to provide No Objection Certificates (NOC)s  to Soumya Sarkar and Mohammad Mithun for their participation in the Afghanistan Premier League. The decision was taken as they are expected to be considered for the upcoming home series against Zimbabwe and Windies.
"We don't want to let them play because of the national commitments and the two upcoming home-series," BCB cricket operation chairman Akram Khan told Cricbuzz.
Sarkar and Mithun were drafted in by Kandahar Knights, along with compatriot Taskin Ahmed. Taskin joined the side upon his issuance of the NOC, on Tuesday (October 2) while both of them were expected to fly in Friday.
"Taskin got the NOC for other reasons. [He is] a fast bowler and he was injured for a long time and so we want to see his condition," he added.
Bangladesh will host the Zimbabwe and Windies for bilateral series between October 21 and December 22.
