Shakib Al Hasan wanted to leave the Bangladesh team's tour of New Zealand. Today, BCB president Nazmul Hasan said, Shakib's leave has been granted. Nazmul Hasan came to pay a courtesy call on Bangladesh Nari Dal at Sonargaon Hotel in the capital.

Shakib had already verbally asked for leave for the New Zealand tour. But the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) announced the squad for the tour of New Zealand, leaving Shakib out as he did not want a written leave. After the announcement of the team, however, Shakib applied for leave in writing. This time Shakib does not want to visit New Zealand due to family reasons, not injury or rest.


Of course, this is not new for Shakib. Shakib is not playing Test cricket due to injury and rest. According to the statistics of the last four years, Shakib can be seen in a white jersey in Kalevadra. After the Australia series in 2016, Shakib has played only 6 Tests. At this time Bangladesh team has played 26 Tests.

Shakib's retirement from Test cricket began with his 2016 tour of South Africa. Seba has taken a six-month leave from international cricket to return to cricket after recovering mentally and physically. Injuries, Shakib did not play several Test matches after the ICC ban.

Then in March this year, Shakib did not go to New Zealand to stay with his child-bearing wife. The March tour, however, did not have a Test match. Bangladesh played three ODIs and three T20s in New Zealand last March. Shakib did not visit Sri Lanka in May. Shakib played IPL at that time without playing Test cricket to prepare for the T20 World Cup. Bangladesh has played two Tests in Sri Lanka.

Shakib was knocked out in the middle of the T20 World Cup due to a hamstring injury. After that, the left-arm all-rounder could not play in the T20 series against Pakistan at home. It was hoped that Shakib would return to cricket with a Test series against Pakistan. But Bangladesh did not get Shakib in the first Test of the series in Chittagong due to a delay in the rehabilitation process. Despite returning to the red ball game with the ongoing Mirpur Test against Pakistan, the Bangladesh team will not get Shakib in the next Test.

If all goes well, Bangladesh will travel to New Zealand on December 9 to play a two-match Test series. Bangladesh team will play two warm-up matches at the end of one week quarantine there. The first test will start on January 1 at Mount Manganui.

The rain took another day

Nature has made a bet not to allow the Mirpur Test to be played. The first two days saw a small bat-and-ball fight, but today, on the third day, no ball was rolled on the field. Rainy day game pond has been announced.

Tomorrow the fourth day's game will start at 9:30 am Bangladesh time. Plan to play 96 overs tomorrow. But if the rain allows it!

It has been raining in Dhaka since last night due to cyclone Jawad. Ordinary people have been suffering since this morning in order to carry out normal activities, how can cricket be in this!

The two teams were asked to stay at the hotel since morning. If the rain had stopped, the game might have started, but the rain did not stop. That is why the game of the day was declared abandoned a while ago.


The good news for cricket fans, however, is that Suzymama may be seen in the sky tomorrow morning, according to the Meteorological Department. In that case, the hope of seeing some bat-ball fights in the last two days of the second Test of the Bangladesh-Pakistan series in Mirpur is also getting a little more light.

So far in three days, the bat-and-ball fight has been only 63.2 overs. Of these, 56 overs were scored on the first day. Due to the lack of light, the game ended earlier that day. But on a cloudy day yesterday, only 36 balls could be played in the intermittent rain. Today he did not get the opportunity.

Batting after winning the toss, Pakistan has so far scored 17 runs for 2 wickets. On the first day, two wickets of two opening batsmen fell in 25 overs.


Azhar Ali and captain Babar Azam are in the crease for Pakistan. Both scored half-centuries, Azhar unbeaten on 52 and Babar on 61. Taizul Islam took two wickets for Bangladesh.

In the first Test of this two-Test series, Pakistan is leading the series by winning by 6 wickets in Chittagong.

Kohli overcame himself in the Mumbai win

India won the Mumbai Test against New Zealand by a huge margin. The 382-run victory came in four innings, India's biggest win in a Test run. Rahul Dravid's chapter as a coach started with a record win in Tests.

India has won by a margin of three hundred or more runs in a match in which they have to bat for two innings. That was against South Africa in 2015. India won the match by 338 runs at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi. That win against the Proteas for so long as India's biggest Test win in terms of runs.


Today, captain Virat Kohli surpassed his own achievement at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Kohli was also the captain of India in that Test in Delhi in 2015. He is also the captain of the 362-run win against New Zealand in Mumbai today.

The Test in Mumbai was supposed to be by New Zealand left-arm spinner Ejaz Patel. He took all the wickets of India in the first two days of the Test alone. Ejaz is only the third bowler in cricket history after Jim Laker and Anil Kumble to take 10 wickets in an innings in a Test. Ejaz held India to 325 in the first innings but New Zealand was bowled out for 72 in their first innings. Ejaz's 10 wicket haul was ruined here.

India scored 26 for 6 in the second innings to take the Mumbai Test out of the reach of the Kiwis. In the end, Ravichandran Ashwin and Jayant Yadav shared 8 wickets and bowled out New Zealand for just 16 runs. The celebration of Ejaz Patel's unique feat with 362 runs now seems dreamy.

Kohli was not in the first Test in Kanpur. New Zealand's convincing batting did not allow India to win the Test. Back in Mumbai, Kohli got a great win. There is joy in his eyes, face, and voice in expressing his feelings, 'It is a great feeling to return to Test cricket with a win. Great performance back as captain, but that has happened many times. As a captain, I always want someone to stand up, and this is happening all the time. We did well in the first Test too, but at the end of the match, we discussed among ourselves where the shortcomings were. Today's success is only by playing according to him. '
