Bangladesh Cricket Board is set to reduce the international ban on Sabbir Rahman, making him available for selection for the upcoming ODI series against New Zealand. Bangladesh will tour New Zealand right after completing the BPL in the first week of February for a three-match series.
Sabbir was slapped a six-month ban from international cricket by the BCB in September 2018 for his repeated off-field issues, the latest one being his social network fiasco where he was alleged to have abused and threatened a fan on Facebook.
