All Stars Cricket Under Criticism for Ignoring Bangladesh Players

The All Stars Cricket league, a tournament for all the retired legends of the sport, has come under criticism for taking no notice of Bangladesh players, despite boasting of players from almost all the Test-playing nations including India, West Indies, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, England, Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand.

Naimur Rahman, the Director of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and first Test captain from his country, spurted flak on the tournament organizers – Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne – to disregard the likes of former Bangladesh greats such as Habibul Bashar, Akram Khan, Khaled Mashud and Khaled Mahmud.

The 41-year-odl further added that it would not have been a concern had any of their players not been in the playing XI, but the fact that no Bangladesh cricketer was contacted for the league hurts them the most.

Meanwhile, the tournament kicked-off on Saturday, with ‘Shane’s Warriors’ pulling off a conquest of ‘Sachin’s Blasters’ in the first of the three-match Twenty20 series in the United States of America.
