On Friday, January 6, the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) governing council chairman Sheikh Sohel responded to the premier all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan’s “would take me 1-2 months to correct everything” remark, which he made while referring to the Hindi film ‘Nayak’.
Bangladesh Test captain Shakib Al Hasan recently criticised BPL ahead of the 9th edition of the tournament, which will be played from January 6 to 16, while referring to the Hindi film ‘Nayak’.
In the movie ‘Nayak’, the protagonist Anil Kapoor is challenged by the chief minister to run the state for one day and he goes on to initiate sweeping reforms in 24 hours.
“If they made me the BPL CEO, it would take me one or two months to correct everything. You have seen the movie Nayak right? If you want to do something, you can do it in one day,” Shakib said.

If Shakib Al Hasan didn’t talk, would there be publicity? – BPL governing council member secretary Ismail Haider Mallick
Recently, Shakib Al Hasan said that the Dhaka Premier League was better run than the Bangladesh Premier League. Responding to this the BPL governing council secretary Ismail Haider Mallick said:
“This [what Shakib said] is not discomforting. Earlier I was talking to Shakib. Talked to Mashrafe [Bin Mortaza] as well. We are members of the same family and there can be differences of opinion.
“If someone says it they can. From what I see, Shakib often doesn’t play premier division (Dhaka Premier League ) matches. But till now he hasn’t missed a BPL fixture. I don’t think it’s an argument.
“If Shakib didn’t talk, would there be publicity?” he later joked.
