LAHORE – Former Pakistan Captain Shoaib Malik was gearing up to join the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), the sources said on Thursday. Shoaib Malik will join the Fortune Barishal on February 2 and will also play a match against the Chattogram Challengers on February 3.

According to the latest reports, Shoaib Malik had gone to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for personal commitments, informing Captain Tamim Iqbal. Shoaib Malik informed Tamim Iqbal that he would return if necessary from his UAE tour.

Captain Tamim Iqbal asked Shoaib Malik For Re-joining.

Shoaib Malik, however, discussed batting at number four instead of six but the matter was now settled as he would bat at number four for Barishal. Shoaib Malik took a break from the Bangladesh League, showing confidence in management. During the break, Shoaib Malik participated in the commitment by wearing his shoes.

It should be noted that Shoaib Malik left the BPL last week and went to Dubai from Dhaka for personal commitments. After leaving Shoaib Malik’s team, he was accused of being involved in fixing. However, Fortune Barishal and Shoaib Malik denied the allegations.

It was not clear initially why Malik had left. Later, he tweeted: “I would like to address and dismiss the recent rumors circulating about my playing position with Fortune Barishal. I had a thorough discussion with our captain, Tamim Iqbal, and we mutually planned the way forward. I had to leave Bangladesh for a pre-committed media engagement in Dubai.”

In His Three Outings For Barishal so Far Shoaib Malik

In his three outings for Barishal so far, Malik batted at No. 6 and scored 7, 5* and 17*. He bowled one over in each of the first two games but didn’t get to bowl in the third.

There was a storm around Malik on social media during the second game, against Khulna Tigers in Mirpur. Bowling the fourth over of the innings, he overstepped three times and leaked 18 runs as Fortune Barishal failed to defend 187.

Malik is the only spinner to overstep three times in an over in men’s T20s (where data is available with ESPNcricinfo). Only Miguel Cummins bowled more front-foot no-balls in an over when he overstepped five times in a CPL 2014 match.
