The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) confirmed that both Bangladesh cricket pacers, Taskin Ahmed and Tawhid Hridoy, applied for an NOC on an official basis for the LPL 2023. However, it was learned that there will be no NOC for Taskin for the tournament due to workload management issues ahead of the Asia Cup and the World Cup. On the other hand, Hridoy gets permission and will be granted an NOC.

Bangladesh cricket has witnessed a surge in players seeking No Objection Certificates (NOCs) to participate in prestigious franchise leagues worldwide. Taskin Ahmed and Tawhid Hridoy are the latest players to join this trend. Securing an NOC not only provides them with valuable experience in foreign conditions but also boosts their confidence in the game.

Taskin Ahmed applied for a full NOC to participate in the Lankan Premier League (LPL), while Tawhid Hridoy sought permission to represent Jaffna Kings until August 8. Additionally, Shoriful Islam received an offer for the LPL but is yet to formally request an NOC.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has decided to grant NOC to Tawhid Hridoy, recognizing that batters face less strain compared to fast bowlers. However, Taskin’s NOC request was turned down, considering the upcoming World Cup and Asia Cup, and his current participation in the Zim Afro T10 league. The BCB is mindful of his workload and aims to keep him fresh and fit for the crucial tournaments ahead.

“Towhid Hridoy will be granted NOC. For Taskin, however, the board has decided against it since there is World Cup and Asia Cup coming up and also since he is currently playing in a franchise league (Zim Afro T10 league), he will cross the level of workload he should take on. With that in mind, the team management and board has decided not to grant him [Taskin] NOC for LPL,” a Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) official said.

This decision comes as a disappointment to Taskin, who has previously sacrificed opportunities to play in the IPL, English County cricket, and the PSL, in order to prioritize national duties. Despite this setback, Taskin remains a sought-after player due to his impressive performances.

Mushfiqur Rahim is another Bangladeshi player currently engaged in the Zim Afro T10 league in Zimbabwe. Additionally, star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and batter Liton Das are actively participating in the Global T20 Canada tournament, with Shakib also set to feature in the LPL alongside Mohammad Mithun for Galle Gladiators.

The success of Bangladeshi players on the international stage has drawn increased interest from various franchise leagues. The BCB acknowledges this growing trend and now carefully considers NOC requests to strike a balance between national commitments and players’ opportunities to excel in foreign leagues.

Shahriar Nafees, the cricket operations manager, points out that the surge in NOC requests is a result of the players’ outstanding performances. Previously, the interest was primarily focused on Shakib Al Hasan, but now more players are attracting attention from franchise leagues.

However, the BCB faces the challenge of managing players’ workloads effectively, especially with the all-important ODI World Cup approaching. Taskin’s case serves as a reminder that the board needs to reassess its workload management strategy after the upcoming tournament in India. The increasing number of players being sought by foreign leagues necessitates a sufficient player pool to accommodate participation in other tournaments when the schedule permits.
