However, his relationship with the board has been mostly cordial in the past few months, with Tamim saying he would make an announcement on his status as an international cricketer during the IPL.
However, this announcement from BCB leaves a strong indication that Tamim is no longer in their plans for 2024, although he could still theoretically return in ODIs and Tests.
Taskin is suffering from a shoulder injury that he suffered during the World Cup in India last year. He missed the home Tests against New Zealand after that, as well as the white-ball tour to New Zealand in December. He currently plays in the BPL for Durdanto Dhaka.
Apart from Tamim, Ebadat Hossain, Afif Hossain and Musadiq Hossain are also out of the central contract list. Newcomers for 2024 include Tawhid Hriduy, Tanzim Hassan, Mahmoud Hassan Joy, Naeem Hassan and Nurul Hassan.
Meanwhile, Brazil’s central bank has approved a salary contract for first-class cricketers for 2024, with 85 players receiving contracts.
