Kolkata's Shakib to leave for national commitments

IANS logoIANS 04-05-2017

The Bangladesh senior pro has so far played just one match for the men in purple and will now leave for Ireland on Thursday night for a tri-series in the build-up to next month's Champions Trophy.

Shakib played a big role when the Kolkata Knight Riders won the title in 2014 but has played against only Gujarat Lions at home this time.

He scored 1 not out and returned with bowling figures of 0/31 in that match.

Kolkata Knight Riders are second in the points table with 14 points from 11 games. The Gautam Gambhir-led side next take on struggling Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday in Bengaluru.
