BCB to allow players two NOCs per year
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) will allow the country's contracted players only two No Objection Certificates (NOC) per year to play in overseas leagues, according to board CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury as reported by espn.in. Bangladesh's contracted players have been informed of the decision - which comes into effect immediately - through a letter that detailed the new restrictions. The leagues included in the restrictions are of all formats, while the board made it mandatory for players to participate in Bangladesh's first-class tournaments. "It is a principled, policy decision of the board," Chowdhury said. "We will allow two NOCs per year. It will be on a case-by-case basis and it is with immediate effect. We want to give them enough rest and manage their injuries. We want to ensure all our players are available for international matches." Chowdhury, however, did not specify what prompted them to make this decision but ESPNcricinfo understands that it is one of the major fallouts after Bangladesh's disastrous tour of South Africa. The move would mostly affect Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh's busiest cricketer, who has been playing in the IPL, BBL, PSL and CPL for several years. The likes of Tamim Iqbal, Mustafizur Rahman and Mahmudullah have also started to steadily feature in T20 leagues other than the IPL. Tamim, Shakib and Mustafizur have been picked to play in a T10 competition next month. Limiting the number of NOCs is an unprecedented move from the BCB, and given how they have reacted in the past, this policy could see a reversal as well. The board has refused NOCs in the past, especially in the case of Shakib, when he was banned for six months in 2014. But Shakib's restriction was soon lifted, after a string of strong performances from the allrounder for the national side. The Bangladesh players, however, when contacted, did not wish to comment. It was learned that the BCB recently put restrictions on national players from talking about certain issues with the media.
