Shoriful Islam Receives Offer From Colombo Strikers

In the lead-up to the highly anticipated Lanka Premier League (LPL), franchises have been actively seeking talent from Bangladesh to bolster their squads. Shoriful Islam, one of Bangladesh’s young pacers, receives an offer from Colombo Strikers for the upcoming tournament.

The news was confirmed by none other than Shoriful himself, who spoke about the offer in an interview. However, the cricketer’s participation in the LPL hinges on the receipt of a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). Such certificates are essential for Bangladeshi players to participate in foreign leagues while ensuring their commitments to the national team are balanced.

In their last match against Afghanistan, Shoriful played a crucial role for the squad. He proved to be highly effective and relentless in the scorching sun. In the very first over of the innings, he dismissed Ibrahim Zadran and then forced Rahmat to get a duck. Even Rahmanullah Gurbaz couldn’t escape his prowess, as the young pace sensation from Bangladesh, Shoriful Islam, removed him for a slow 6 off 22 deliveries. Shoriful’s outstanding performance did not end there. He went on to trap Mohammad Nabi in front of his pads, resulting in an LBW, and with that, Afghanistan found themselves in a dire situation, with the scorecard reading 15-4.

Shoriful is not the only Bangladeshi player to have received such offers. Both Taskin Ahmed and Towhid Hridoy were earlier approached by Dambulla Giants and Jaffna Kings, respectively, to be a part of their LPL squads. However, the finalization of their participation, like Shoriful’s, depends on the issuance of the NOC, which is a standard procedure for players representing Bangladesh.

A Showcase of Talent: Rohit’s Standout Performances

As of now, only two Bangladeshi cricketers have been confirmed to play in the upcoming LPL season: the renowned all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and the talented wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Mithun. Shakib, currently showcasing his skills for the Montreal Tigers in Canada’s Global T20 League, is expected to join the LPL after completing his commitments in the ongoing tournament. The LPL is set to kick off on July 30 in Sri Lanka, attracting cricketing talent from around the world.

Shakib’s inclusion in the LPL was unique as he was directly signed by Galle Gladiators before the auction. His wealth of experience and skill in all aspects of the game make him a valuable asset to any team. Mohammad Mithun, another impressive Bangladeshi cricketer, was also acquired by the Galle Gladiators through the auction, adding depth to their lineup.

The LPL has been one of the premier T20 leagues in the cricketing calendar, offering a platform for both seasoned international stars and promising young talents to showcase their abilities on a global stage. It comes as no surprise that franchises are actively seeking out talented players from Bangladesh, a country with a rich cricketing heritage.

For Shoriful, Taskin, and Hridoy, the prospect of participating in the LPL is undoubtedly exciting. It presents an opportunity to gain exposure to high-intensity cricket, learn from some of the best in the business, and further hone their skills. Moreover, performing well in the LPL can significantly boost their profiles and pave the way for more lucrative contracts and opportunities in other T20 leagues worldwide.
