Victoria say victory a poetic justiceStaff Correspondent
Victoria Sporting Club believe that their win against Abahani by five wickets in the crucial replay match on Thursday was a poetic justice.
The league resumed after it was postponed on March 28 when Abahani refused to play halfway through the match against the same opponents raising objection to the registration of their overseas recruit Mohammad Yusuf.
‘Today it was proved again there is an Allah. It was a natural justice,’ Lutfor Rahman Badal, chairman of Victoria’s governing council, told reporters after the game
‘The way they behaved with us and treated us in this regard, it was an answer written by Allah for the board and its officials,’ said a satisfied Badal.
‘We had to sacrifice the most. If we had not changed our stance this league could not have resumed,’ he added.
Victoria’s star performer Sakib al Hasan said that he was happy that at last the league resumed.
‘I always believed that the league will resume, so I hardly had any tension about it,’ said Sakib.
Sakib further added that the Mohammad Yusuf issue should be sorted out at the earliest and if he is not legal then Victoria should be allowed to have a replacement.
‘If the registration of Yusuf is valid then he should be allowed to play and if it isn’t then we should be allowed to get a replacement,’ said Sakib.
‘This should be done quickly by the Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis as the league has started and we hardly have much of a time,’ said Sakib, who played a vital role in the win against Abahani.
