Bangladesh women’s cricket team captain Rumana Akhtar has been dropped from the team for the series against Sri Lanka. After that she filed a complaint against the management. According to Rumana, the authorities told that they will rest her for the series against Sri Lanka. But actually the board dropped her.

Bangladesh women’s team toured Sri Lanka from April 29 to May 12. There two teams will play three one-day matches and three T20 matches. Rumana had a conflict with the management before that. According to her, one should consult with someone before giving them rest. But without doing that, she was excluded.

Rumana Akhtar said that she expected a basic discussion from the Bangladesh Cricket board

Rumana moreover said,

“I am sure that I have been left out. Management can rest someone if they want. But I should have talked to you once. I don’t even know why I was rested.”

The Bangladesh captain also said that she understood the management’s plan. But don’t want to say more about that now. Rumana said,

“They kept me out of the team without talking to me. I understand what they want. But I won’t say anything now. I will open my mouth when the time comes.”

Rumana’s sudden rest has brought controversy to Bangladesh cricket again. After this comment of the captain, no official statement has been issued by the Bangladesh Cricket Board. This resulted in more water turbidity. It remains to be seen whether the Bangladesh Cricket Board makes a statement before the tour of Sri Lanka. At the same time, the experts of that country are keeping an eye on whether the captain has to face any punishment for speaking out against the board.
