“We will enter into a new contact with the players (for 2021),” Nazmul informed reporters, in accordance to ESPNcricinfo.

“It shall be talked about clearly who desires to play which format. They have to inform us. If they’ve some other engagement, they’ve to be clear about their availability. It may be very open.

“Previously, it depended on individuals but now we are confirming it in writing, so that nobody can say that they haven’t been allowed or we kept them forcefully.”

Nazmul was talking after a gathering along with his board members on the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium right here.

The 33-year-old has beforehand performed for the Knight Riders between 2011 and 2017 and was a key member of their title-winning sides in 2012 and 2014.
