Ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan departed from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka at 10 am on Saturday [March 27] to participate in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 edition.

Bangladeshi star all-rounder will join the team after a week of quarantine. He was picked by IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders for Indian Rupee 3.2 crores from the players’ auction held in February.

The left arm all-rounder missed the tour of New Zealand as he was with his pregnant wife in the USA. He is expected to miss the upcoming two-match Test series against Sri Lanka which is set to begin from April 21.

Shakib has previously played for the Kolkata Knight Riders between 2011 and 2017, and was an integral member of their championship winning sides of 2012 and 2014.

Shakib’s IPL journey will start on April 11 with the match against Shakib's former team Sunrisers Hyderabad.
