The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) provided No Objection Certificate (NOC) to all of the players, sans Taskin Ahmed, who were drafted to play the T-10 league in United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Taskin has not expressed interest in playing in the T-10 league as Bangladesh will have a two-match test series against West Indies scheduled for next month while the pacer is considering for the test series.
The Sheikh Zayed Stadium will host the entire competition from January 28, 2021 to February 6, 2021.
Akram Khan, the chairman of the cricket operations committee of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), said on Saturday "We have given no-objection letters to all the players except Taskin as We are considering him for the Test series. So he was not given clearance."
The Maratha Arabians, as the first team to call Bangladeshi players, singed Taskin Ahmed on December 23,2020, however, they have included spin all-rounder Sohag Gazi instead of Taskin.
The Maratha Arabians have enlisted Mosaddek Hossain Saikat in their squad and pace-bowling all-rounder Muktar Ali as well.
However, Afif Hossain and Mahedi Hasan were roped in Bangladesh-based team, Bangla Tigers while Pune Devils called up Nasir Hossain.
Nasir, Sohag and Muktar Ali have already arrived Dubai while Mosaddek is leaving the country tonight.
Afif Hossain and Mahedi Hasan, who are in the ODI squad against the West Indies, will leave the country at the end of the three-match series as the third and final ODI will be held in Chattogram next Monday.
