When will this cricket academy of Shakib’s dream be launched, said MA Sabur, the patron of Moscow Shakib Cricket Academy, it will be officially launched on February 5 next year. However, it will be partially launched in January. In March this year, Shakib expressed his dream of building a cricket academy.
He said, ‘There are many opportunities in our country now. A lot can be done. I need time for that. I’m doing some work. Whenever there is a charity or event, I try to stay involved with it. Since I am a cricketer, I wish I had an academy. There will be a world class academy. Bangladesh will not only make players there. Will also come from other countries and will practice in that academy. Then their perception of Bangladesh will change.
