BPL 2022: Mashrafe Mortaza makes it to the Highest Category of Local Player's Draft
Former Bangladesh Captain Mashrafee Bin Mortaza is included in the highest category of the local player’s draft for the BPL 2022 despite not playing regularly in domestic cricket. According to the BPL 2022 Player’s Draft List, six leading players are included in the A category & they are Mashrafee Bin Mortaza, Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mustafizur Rahman
The inclusion of Mortaza in the highest category raised many questions considering the fact that he is not playing much cricket & is busy with his duty as a member of Parliament. Mortaza was last seen into action in the final of BPL 2020 on December 18. However BPL Governing Council Member Ismail Haider said that he still deserves recognition, according to the reports of cricbuzz.

”Yes we have kept Mashrafee in A category as we feel he deserves to be there,” said Ismail. “Though I cannot comment about the national team, he is still a very good player in the domestic circuit and is one of the best cricketing brains around. We must also show some respect for all his contribution and if you go by statistics you will see he is very successful in BPL,” he further added.

Meanwhile injured player Mohammed Saifuddin couldn’t make it to the player’s draft list for BPL 2022. This move of the BPL council didn’t go well with him as he was looking ahead to participate in the league just as a batsman considering his back injury which couldn’t permit him to bowl.

“Nobody is ready to hear or understand junior players like us. I don’t have any complaint against anyone but I am hurt,” Saifuddin wrote on his Facebook page.

The B category includes 14 cricketers while there are 40 cricketers in the C category. In D, E, F category there are 60, 63, and 29 players respectively.
