Bangladesh’s Cricket Board said on Thursday it has barred former Australian captain Steve Smith from the forthcoming Bangladesh Premier League Twenty20 tournament following an objection raised by some franchises. Smith had signed for Comilla Victorians to play in the next edition of the BPL starting on January 5. He was expected to join the team as a replacement for Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik. “The rule of the tournament is that if a franchise takes a replacement, his name should be in the list of initial players’ draft. But Smith’s name was not there, “ said Bangladesh Cricket Board chief Nizamuddin Chowdhury.
