The resurgence of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) might have been an inspiring and heartwarming journey for the Bangladeshis, but it has hardly pleased the Pakistani players or their fans. First, it was T20I skipper Shahid Afridi who complained about the payment defaults in the league. Now, it is said that senior Pakistan players such as Misbah Ul Haq, Umar Akmal and Kamran Akmal are disappointed after being ignored by their franchises in key games.

“I can’t say much on this, but I guess the team owners and coaches know what is required. But it is not easy sitting on the bench for so long,” Misbah said after being left out of a knockout game. Not just Misbah, but key Pakistani individuals such as Wahab Riaz and the Akmal brothers too were given the cold shoulder.

“I had made it clear to my franchise owners and management that I wanted to open in the BPL but after just two matches I didn’t get any proper response,” Kamran Akmal said. “I didn’t go there only for the money, I went there as I thought the BPL would allow me to further remind the selectors I am doing well,” Akmal said.

“Obviously, it is not easy to be ignored like this for majority matches. It has been tough on Misbah, but he has handled himself well,” Wahab Riaz said, who also participated in the tournament.
