Shahriar Nafees, the cricket operations manager for the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), said on Monday that Towhid Hridoy has submitted an application for a No Objection Certificate (NOC) in order to participate in the Lanka Premier League in Sri Lanka.
Hridoy is a batter for Bangladesh.
If he is given the NOC, the 22-year-old player will play for the Jaffna Kings, who are the current league winners, for a total of three matches.
“An offer to play in the Lanka Premier League has been extended to Hridoy. They informed us in an official manner and requested the NOC. However, the board has not yet made a decision about whether or not to grant him the NOC. According to what Nafees said to The Daily Star, the offer does not cover the whole of the competition.
The LPL will take place from the 30th of July till the 20th of August.
Although Bangladesh does not have any matches planned within that window, the Tigers will begin a practice camp on July 30 with the Asia Cup in mind.
