The world's most popular franchise T20 tournament, the Indian Premier League (IPL), is set to take place in a few days. The interest of Bangladeshi cricket fans is high around this year's event. Because, after a break of one year, two big cricket stars of the country Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman are returning to IPL.
There is another reason for Bangladeshis to be more interested in IPL this year. Shakib is back in their favorite team Kolkata Knight Riders. Moreover, this team is also the old team of the best all-rounder in the world. From where he won the title of the tournament in 2012 and 2014. Even when buying Shakib at auction, the franchise authorities said that they consider the Bangladeshi star as a symbol of lucky charm or good fortune for themselves.
Shakib Al Hasan left Dhaka to play in the IPL about a week ago. Arriving in Mumbai, the party observed a seven-day quarantine at the hotel. Which ended yesterday Saturday. As a result, he joined the party practice on Sunday (March 4).
Kolkata Knight Riders tweeted about this. It is written in the caption, back to where he lived!
And the picture shows the former Bangladesh captain talking to head coach Bandon McCullum about something. In another picture, he looks quite tired, but he still has a smile on his face. He seemed to be resting after practice.
