Bangladesh premier all-rounder Shakib al Hasan is set to be granted No Objection Certificate to participate in the remainder of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Bangladesh Cricket Board cricket operations committee chairman Akram Khan confirmed the development to the media on Sunday.

“Mustafiz applied a few days ago and Shakib gave the letter yesterday. We will make a decision on the 1st of September,” said Akram.

Earlier, BCB was not willing to give the NOC to Shakib and another participant from Bangladesh Mustafizur Rahman as they were expected to be with the national team for the preparations of the upcoming World T20I.

Bangladesh were scheduled to play a three-match ODI series and as many T20 series against England in September. However, the series was postponed by the English Cricket Board, which opened the door for the players to participate in the franchise league.

The second leg of the IPL is set to take place from September 19 to October 15 in the United Arab Emirates.
