In the video, Shoaib discussed the ongoing crisis of Bangladesh cricket and clarified the reason behind his demand of the BCB president’s resignation.
“This guy [BCB president] is a loose cannon. He is not the right man for the job, which is leading the Bangladesh cricket,” he said.
‘I have many fans in Bangladesh cricket. They love me very much. Starting from players like Mushfiqur, Mustafizur, Tamim, Shakib and everyone as a leader they decided they want the president to resign. He needs to resign,” the former Pakistani pacer added.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday night the national cricketers withdrew their strike as BCB authorities assured them to fulfill the majority of their demands. The decision came after ‘a fruitful meeting’ between the cricketers and the BCB authorities.
