The seventh edition of Caribbean Premier league (CPL) saw a surprising turnaround for Bangladesh after no one apart from Afif Hossain got a team in the daft held at the Gfinity eSports Arena in London on Wednesday.

 A total of 18 Bangladeshi players were drafted including the big names of Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah Riyad, Mushfiqur who were the part of CPL in the last four years. The reason for their omission from this season is yet to be known.

Taskin Ahmed,  Anamul Haque Bijoy, Liton Kumer Das, Zakir Hossain, Ariful Haque,Zubair Hossain Likhon,Imrul Kayes, Mohammad Mithun, Sabbir Rahman, Abul Hasan Raju, Abu Haider Rony and Mohammad Saifuddin were the other players who were amongst the record 536 players of CPL draft.

Youngster Afif Hossain got the team only when St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, a team in which his Sylhet Sixers teammate Nicholar Pooran is the marquee player.

Shakib however was a familiar figure in CPL for the past few years. But no franchise has included him this year. Shakib has played total 21 matches in CPL so far, he has scored 182 runs and taken 23 wickets. His best bowling figure is 6/6, which remains the second best bowling figure in T20 cricket history.

His omission came as a surprise. In last year’s CPL edition Mahmudullah played for Guyana, his performance with the bat and ball was pretty ordinary, resulting an exclusion as it is believed.

Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Tamim Iqbal also have the experience of playing in the CPL. But none of them got a team.

The CPL is set to begin on September 4, with the final on October 12.
