Shakib al hasan, Bangladeshi cricketing star went unsold in IPL 2022 mega auction. He was among those 76 including big names like Amit mishra, Jaydev Unadkat, Suresh Raina and more who didn’t find any takers in IPL 2022 Mega auction.

Many of the cricketing experts and others felt bad about Shakib al hasan not being in a team and many speculated why the arch quality players like Raina and Shakib al hasan are missing games but Shakib al hasan’s wife explained why he went unsold in the auction through a Facebook post.

Umme Ahmed Shishir  took to Facebook to clarify that before everyone jumps the gun, Shakib was approached by a couple of franchises, however, his commitment to the national side for the South Africa series didn’t allow him to be available for the full season and that resulted in him being not in any of the teams’ plans.

“Before you get too excited a couple of teams contacted him directly ahead of time if he can be available for the full season, but unfortunately he can’t due to Sri Lanka series! This is why he did not get picked which is not a big deal, it is not the end, there’s always next year!” she wrote.

However, she didn’t stop there as she said if Shakib had missed the series due to IPL he would be labelled as a traitor and he didn’t want to miss the series against South Africa.

“In order to be picked he needed to skip SL series, so if he was picked would you have said the same? or would you have made him a traitor by now? Sorry to pour water on your excitement!” Umme further said.

While she mentioned Sri Lanka, it’s not the island country but the Rainbow nation where the Bangladesh men’s team will be heading in late March and early April.Shakib al hasan

After the home series against Afghanistan, the Bangla Tigers will be touring South Africa for three ODIs and two Test matches. While the ODI series gets completed on March 23, the two Test matches are scheduled from March 31-April 4 and April 8-12, which means that the players involved in those games will not be available for the first 15 days of the IPL, which seems to be the undoing here.
