Within the subsequent couple of days, we'll talk about his NOC. If he has an curiosity, he'll play Exams in Sri Lanka. We'll determine about the remaining after listening to the entire interview," ESPNcricinfo quoted Akram as saying.

"These two Checks are our final matches within the World Check Championship so it isn't as if we're going to play the ultimate. We're on the very backside of the factors desk. I do not assume it makes a lot of a distinction. The opposite main purpose is that the World Cup T20 is in India later this yr. It's a essential event the place we now have a lot to realize. There is not a lot to realize in these two Checks. I feel it's a higher choice that I put together myself for one thing greater," Shakib advised Cricfrenzy, as reported by ESPNcricinfo.
"Those that hold saying that I do not need to play Exams, I'm positive they did not learn my letter. I did not point out anyplace in my letter to the BCB that I do not need to play Checks. I wrote that I need to play the IPL to organize myself for the World Cup," he added.
