Shakib Al Hasan and Mostafizur Rahman, the two cricketers playing in the IPL, have finally arrived in Dhaka after putting an end to all speculations. The BCCI has sent them to Dhaka on a chartered flight.

The news that Shakib and Mostafiz are arriving in Dhaka today was broadcast on Jagonews shortly after noon. BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury Sujan told this information to the country’s online media. However, he did not say anything from time to time. Maybe, the BCB CEO did not give the time so that Shakib-Mostafiz could arrive safely and no unnecessary crowd was created at the airport.

According to BCB sources, Shakib Al Hasan and Mostafizur Rahman arrived at Hazrat Shah Jalal International Airport in Dhaka on a chartered flight at 4 pm today. These two cricketers have to observe 14 days quarantine as per the government rules.

Uncertainty arose over the repatriation of two Bangladeshi cricketers, Shakib Al Hasan and Mostafizur Rahman, after the suspension of the IPL, India’s franchise tournament. Especially after the horrific corona infection in India, the government of Bangladesh closed the border with the country, creating complications for them to come to the country.

However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has said from the outset that they will arrange for the repatriation of foreign cricketers. They will take care of all the complications as soon as possible. Only the boards of the countries concerned will monitor the return of cricketers from their respective countries.

Bangladesh Cricket Board chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury Sujan has been overseeing the return of Shakib and Mostafiz from the outset. The BCB wanted these two cricketers to return to the country soon. Since the official rule is that anyone returning to India has to quarantine for 14 days, the two of them can play their first match against Sri Lanka on May 23, so the BCBO was keen to get Shakib-Mostafiz back quickly.

Shakib Al Hasan played for Kolkata Knight Riders and Mostafizur Rahman played for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL. Although Shakib Al Hasan got a chance to play only three matches for KKR, Mostafiz played all seven matches for Rajasthan.

Earlier, it was reported that they would appeal to the government whether the quarantine rule on Shakib-Mostafiz could be relaxed. But a day earlier, a senior health official told the media that there was no room for relaxation and that they must be quarantined at a government-designated center.
