The new franchise of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) season 5, Sylhet Surma Sixers have confirmed the signing of New Zealand skipper, Kane Williamson. Meanwhile, they have also signed the English cricketer, Liam Dawson.
The coordinator of the Sylhet Surma Sixers, Shafiqul Islam has given the information about these two inclusions to the side.
He said to reporters on Monday, “We are glad to inform that Kane Williamson and Liam Dawson will play for Sylhet in this season of BPL. We are very excited with our signings.”
Having a player like Kane Williamson in the side will surely boost up the moral of the team. He can be given the captaincy role too as their Icon player, Sabbir Rahman has no such experience of leading.
New Zealand Skipper has so far played 116 T-20s in his career and scored 27338 runs with an average of 28.43. Williamson has the ability to trouble the batsmen with his off-spin too as he has 30 T-20 wickets to his name.
On the other hand, Liam Dawson is a perfect all-rounder for the T-20 format. He has played 105 T-20s so far and has picked up 943 runs alongside 73 wickets in those.
It has to be mentioned that, apart from Sabbir Rahman as their Icon player, another Bangladeshi superstar, Abul Hasan Raju is also in the team. On the other hand, they earlier signed Dawid Malan and Chris Jordan.
