Bangladesh Cricket Board has denied a No Objection Certificate to pacer Taskin Ahmed, confirming that they had been certainly approached by IPL franchise Lucknow Super Giants(LSG). Mark Wood sustained injury and got of the mega tournament.
With him gone, the franchise quickly closed in on Bangladeshi pacer, however he was denied an NOC because the team is ahead of important series.
“We have spoken with Taskin and he has understood the whole situation. He informed the franchise that he is not playing the IPL and will be available for the South Africa tour and later will return back home,” he added.
Having played for the Chennai Super Kings in 2018,this season would have been Wood’s second in the IPL. While he went wicketless last season, Wood has become an integral part of the England squad in all formats, playing a pivotal role in their 2019 World Cup campaign.
