Bangladesh champion all-rounder Shakib al Hasan said that he is eyeing to implement his plan ahead of returning back to competitive cricket by consulting with BCB after returning home.
Shakib, whose ban will end on October 29, is currently in the USA with his family while he is expected to return to Bangladesh during the first week of November.
He can resume competitive cricket from October 29 as his ban imposed by International Cricket Council for failing to report corrupt approaches ended on Wednesday as well.
In October 2019, the ICC imposed a two-year ban on him, including one year of suspension for violating its anti-corruption code. The ICC said that Shakib, who had been playing international cricket for more than 14 years, failed to report three approaches by match-fixing syndicates in 2018.
Under the provisions of the Code, Shakib chose to admit the charges and agreed to the sanction with the ICC in lieu of an Anti-Corruption Tribunal hearing.
In the meantime, he had completed a four-week training camp with his mentors Mohammad Salahuddin and Nazmul Abedeen Fahim at the BKSP in September. He took part in the training camp as he was expected to return to the Bangladesh team to play the second Test during their (then scheduled) tour of Sri Lanka that eventually got postponed.
As a result, Shakib returned to America to be with his wife and children but now looking forward to making a resumption plan ahead of beginning his second innings of the international career.
BCB president Nazmul Hasan said that the all-rounder had confirmed his availability in the upcoming Bangabandhu T20 Cup 2020, slated to take place in November-December.
"I will return to Bangladesh in the first week of November and then will chalk out the next plans. It’s a bit difficult to plan something from here, so I will start working after my return. And, I will start everything after talking to the BCB, in a proper way," Shakib was quoted in a reception party at New York as his ban will be lifted from October 29.
"I am in touch with the BCB on a regular basis. Even I am in contact with Papon, the president of Bangladesh Cricket Board. Even, I am in touch with the selectors too. I have some exciting plans and for that, I have to return to the country," he further added.
