After speaking with English spinner Jake Lintott, Mehedi Hasan Miraz expressed his desire to play county cricket in England.

Lintott advised his county club Warwickshire to sign the all-rounder from Bangladesh for the August one-day match of the English domestic season.

"Lintott, who plays for Warwickshire and has experience playing for our Premier League [Mohammedan] team, told me that you can join us in August for a one-day tournament. Our schedule may include national team games, so if that occurs, I won't be able to participate. If we don't have any matches, however, I will request a NOC from the board. I'm ready to participate," Miraz said on Sunday to The Daily Star.

After the Bangladesh-Afghanistan series concludes on July 16 and the Asia Cup is scheduled to start on September 02, Miraz will have approximately a six-week break from national commitments before the 2023 One-Day Cup in England begins on August 1. There haven't been any formal discussions with Warwickshire.

Perhaps Lintott informed them that they could view Mehedi Hasan Miraz. I haven't had any formal conversations with anyone from Warwickshire. If it occurs, it will be in the August timeframe, according to Miraz.  

Lintott responded to a question from The Daily Star by saying, "I suggested him (Miraz) to Warwickshire. Nothing has been resolved yet.

In the recently completed Dhaka Premier League (DPL), Lintott played alongside Miraz for Mohammedan Sporting Club. Lintott signed his first professional contract with Warwickshire prior to the 2021 season.

However, Lintott's left-arm wrist spin had an impact; his five-wicket haul against Brothers Union remained the tenth instance of a fifer in the most recent DPL season. Mohammedan finished fifth in the DPL. For their team, the two combined to take 23 wickets, with Lintott taking 17 of them in just six innings.
