Staff Correspondent: Bangladesh cricket bad boy Shakib Al Hasan has again been punished for misbehaving with an umpire. The country’s ace all-rounder was fined Tk. 10,000.
A day after Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Nazmul Hasan Papon hinted to lift foreign league ban on Shakib, the most popular cricketer locked into an altercation with umpire Mizanur Rahman during the 8th round match of Walton Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League- 2014 between Legends of Rupganj and Prime Bank CC at Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Prothisthan Ground-3 in Savar on Wednesday.
During the match, Shakib appealed for an out of Prime Bank foreign batsman Brendan Taylor in his second over. But umpire Mizanur Rahman did not agree with the appeal. A furious Shakib then exchanged hot words with the umpire.
On field umpire Mizanur Rahman informed the matter to match referee Obaydul Huque who found the No. 1 Test all-rounder guilty and fined Tk. 10,000.
Earlier on July 7, BCB had banned Shakib for six months from all kinds of cricket activities for his behavioural problems.
BCB authority also declared at that time that Shakib will not be granted an NOC (No Objection Certificate) to play in overseas competitions including Indian Premier League (IPL) until the end of 2015.
Later on August 26, BCB commuted his ban to two and a half months and the ace all-rounder returned to cricket after September 15 and participated in the just concluded home series against Zimbabwe.
Bangladesh whitewashed Zimbabwe in the 3-match Test and 5-match ODI series where Shakib showed brilliant performance both with the bat and ball.
Following the success, the BCB President Nazmul Hasan on Tuesday announced that the board has decided to lift Shakib’s foreign league ban and also informed that the official declaration will be come on the board meeting on Thursday next.
Just before the meeting, Shakib again created new controversy with his misconduct.
His team Legends of Rupganj also lost the match to Prime Bank CC by 95 runs.
