Dhaka, Sep 14 (UNI) A minimum of 14 leading Bangladesh players including former captain Habibul Bashar are set to sign a contract with the rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL), according to a local media report today.
Bashar, Mohammad Rafique, Alok Kapali, Shahriar Nafees, Aftab Ahmed, Nazim Uddin, Farhad Reza and Dhiman Ghosh are among the players who will join the ICL this week, reported the Dhaka-based Bengali national daily 'Prothom Alo'.
Kapali, Reza and Dhiman were in the Bangladesh squad that played a three-match one-day series against Australia earlier this month.
ICL which has not been sanctioned by the BCCI has already drawn a lot of attention with some of the top international players taking a plunge into it at the cost of international cricket.
Players participating in the league have been banned from playing international cricket by their respective national Boards.
