Mehidy Hasan Miraz accused Chattogram Challengers chief executive officer Syed Yasir Alam for his unexpected withdrawal from the team and ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).
Chattograms management replaced him as captain for the rest of the season with Naeem Islam before the match against Sylhet Sunrisers. Miraz couldn’t accept the decision and that is why he decided to leave the team hotel and return to Dhaka.
However, Miraz said he did not want to play for Chattogram because of Yasir Alam’s misconduct.
“I was told (about the removal from captaincy) just three hours before the game against Sylhet. I had no problem with that. I only wanted to know the reason behind such a decision. I wanted to know what I did wrong in the first four matches as captain. This is an insult to the player,” Miraz told the media on Sunday.
Miraz claimed that the removal of Miraz from the captaincy under the direction of the coach was a lie.
“I don’t think I have any complaints about the owner. The owner is a very good man. The coach is gone, I heard he said a lot about me before he left. He (Paul Nixon) called me today. We talked for about 30 minutes. He didn’t tell me anything like what I’ve heard from the management. But I have been told that the coach had his say in making the decision,’ he added.
Miraz’s biggest objection to Chattogram chief operating officer Yasir Alam. He thinks that there is no playing condition in Chattogram due to Yasir’s amateur behavior.
“I see that he is always busy. If he’s in the team I will not play. If Yasir is not there, then I will play for the team,” Miraz concluded
