BCB has given him permission to stay back in IPL because now he has a chance to play in the team. Because J.Bairstow will be leaving to his home country for WC preparation this made a foreign player slot open for him.

He was injured; he was practicing for quite some time. Personally, I would like him to play a couple of games in IPL to get a bit sharper for of the World Cup,” Walsh said (Bangladesh Bowling Coach)
