The 19-year-old cricketer has been denied the NOC for him to play for the Bangladesh Emerging team in the ongoing home series against their Sri Lankan counterparts

All-rounder Afif Hossain has been denied NOC (No Objection Certificate) by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to participate in the upcoming Caribbean Premier League T20. Afif was the only Bangladesh cricketer to get picked in the seventh edition of the T20 league tournament. The top order batsman and off-spinner Afif was picked by Saint Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the players’ draft that was held in May this year.

Afif however is not saddened by the board’s decision. The 19-year-old cricketer has been denied the NOC for him to play for the Bangladesh Emerging team in the ongoing home series against their Sri Lankan counterparts and also because his chances to be part of the national team in the coming month is high. Afif is a likely candidate to get selected or remain as a back-up for the one-match Test series against Afghanistan that is followed by a T20I tri-nation series comprising Afghanistan and Zimbabwe.

“I have no regret. I have not been given the NOC for the fact that I am representing my country in the ongoing series [against Sri Lanka]. Playing for the country is our first priority and is a big opportunity as a player,” said Afif to the media on Tuesday.

The seventh edition of the CPL T20 is scheduled to lift its curtain on September 4.

Afif first came under the limelight following his record bowling performance in his debut BPL 2016 match for Rajshahi Kings. Backed by his regular performances, he claimed his maiden T20I cap in the home series against Sri Lanka in 2018 but was removed from the national set-up right after his first international game.
