Mushfiqur Rahim serves legal notice to Ekattor TV

Bangladesh senior cricketer Mushfiqur Rahim has served a legal notice to Ekattor media, a private TV channel, for airing a spot-fixing report against him during the second and final Test between Bangladesh and New Zealand.

Mushfiqur was given out for ‘obstructing the field’ during Bangladesh’s first innings in the Test as he pushed the ball away after defending a delivery which violated cricketing laws. By doing so, he became the first Bangladeshi batter to be dismissed for ‘handling the ball.’

On December 6, Ekattor TV aired a report suggesting that Mushfiqur's dismissal was potentially linked to spot-fixing. But the channel later removed the news from their digital platform and also sought an apology to the batter in their digital platform.
