BCB chief selector Minhajul Abedin, while speaking about Yasir Ali’s exclusion from the contract list, said he was not performing as expected.

“It’s true he was a big part of our team, but he couldn’t deliver what we expected and that’s why he’s not included in the central contract,” BCB chief selector Minhajul Abedin told Cricbuzz.

“The other three cricketers – Joy, Shadman, Naim – also fell short of our expectations,” he said.

“We think Zakir is a promising candidate and that is why we have included him in the contract list for the Test category.”
