BSS, Dhaka : Akram Khan, the cricket operations chairman of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) admitted that the absence of Mashrafe Bin Mortaza significantly reduced the strength of the team, which will resume the International cricket this month when they take on West Indies in the upcoming home series. The team management left Mashrafe in a bid to focus on building a team for the 2023 World Cup, even though the decision raised a question given the lanky fast bowler's performance in the recent Bangabandhu T20 Cup Cricket. But the selectors felt that Mashrafe, who is now 37, won't be fit into the team of the 2023 World Cup due to his age. Therefore they opted to nurse some young guys so that they can prepare themselves for the next World Cup.
