|Spinner Rafique gets Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh call|
|Monday, 11 February 2008|
Mohammad Rafique, the star left-arm spinner of Bangladesh, has received an offer to join Team Kolkata for the Indian Premier League.
The team is owned by Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan. Rafique, who has decided to quit international cricket after the upcoming home series against South Africa, reportedly got a call recently from Shah Rukh Khan who collected his phone number from Sourav Ganguly, the former Indian captain.
King Khan bought Team Kolkata for a whopping 75 million Indian rupees last month. Rafique admitted that he had received an offer to play in the IPL.
Yes, I must say that I have been offered to play in the IPL for Team Kolkata, but at the moment I just want to say that all my thoughts are on the upcoming home series against South Africa, I will decide what to do only after the conclusion of the series, said the veteran spinner.
The 37-rear-old cricketer has scored 1,035 runs in 31 Tests and taken 94 wickets. His ODI statistics are 1,191 runs and 125 wickets from exactly 125 matches.
