Bangladesh star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and ace left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman, who were in India for the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), are expected to land in Dhaka today evening.
A close family member of one of the players informed that the duo is supposed to board a charter flight from Ahmedabad in around time to arrive in the country by evening today.
Both Shakib and Mustafizur will be returning to the country on the same flight, with their respective franchises Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals expected to share the cost of the chartered flight.
Many foreign players had already left India following the suspension of IPL on Tuesday, and the question among Bangladesh fans was when Mustafizur and Shakib would return.
While the Directorate General of Health Services had earlier confirmed that both players will have to complete mandatory 14-day institutional quarantine, it is possible that the decision on the number of days in institutional quarantine for the two players will be made after they return home.
