As Mashrafe wasn't listed in the draft, every team has the same right to include him in the squad. But since there are more than one team to show their interest, BCB had to hold a lottery to decide Mashrafe's feat, and it was Gemcon Khulna who won the lottery.
With Mashrafe, Khulna is now equipped with players like Mahmudullah Riyad and Shakib Al Hasan as well.
Before securing Mashrafe's participation, Khulna played five games and won three of them.
Meanwhile, Mashrafe's joining to the Khulna squad is subject to his negative result for COVID-19. As per the latest development, Mashrafe gave the sample for a COVID-19 test on Sunday. If he returns negative, he'll join Khulna squad in the earliest time.
