The BCB is set to run the seventh edition of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) in the name of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to commemorate the occasion of his 100th birthday. And Mashrafei bin Mortaza will play as icon player.

Shakib Al Hasan has joined the Rangpur Raiders and that's creat smog whether Mashrafe will play as icon or not. It is thought that Mashrafe will no longer as an icon in the BPL when he retires from the national team.

BCB President Nazmul Hassan Papon confirmed Mashrafe will play as icon on Wednesday. "Even if he retires from international cricket, Mashrafe will be an icon as long as he plays BPL," he said.

On the other hand, Bangladesh lost a huge margin in the only test in Chittagong. Shakib took four spinners in that match. Shakib's eleventh pick in the field without Pacer. In this regard, Papon said, comparing the captaincy of Mashrafe and Shakib, "Mashrafe wants to play with four pacers and Shakib wants to play with spin."
