Ex-Bangladesh Skipper Tamim Iqbal Excluded from 2024 Central Contract List

Seasoned Bangladesh batsman, Tamim Iqbal, has been notably left out of the Bangladesh Cricket Board’s (BCB) central contract list for 2024.

2023 was a year of upheaval for Tamim, who announced his retirement ahead of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, only to reverse his decision within a day. He later relinquished his captaincy just two months before the esteemed tournament.

Other players missing from the central contract include Ebadot Hossain, Afif Hossain, and Mosaddek Hossain.

New entrants on the list include Towhid Hridoy, Tanzim Hasan, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Naeem Hasan, and Nurul Hasan.
