The Bangladesh Cricket Board’s cricket operations committee chairman has confirmed that they have received a letter from the players regarding their request.
The Kolkata Knight Riders team has picked up Shakib Al Hasan and Liton Das for IPL 2023, which is scheduled to start on March 31, 2023.
The Bangladesh vs Ireland series 2023 will be the only test match for Ireland ahead of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023.
The series will start in May 2023, and it is likely that Shakib and Liton’s absence will be felt by the Bangladesh team.
However, the duo is expected to play a crucial role for Kolkata Knight Riders in the upcoming IPL 2023.
