Cricket news - Shakib set to get a four-match ban for angry outburst
Shakib's outburst could prove to be costly for him and his club
Shakib Al Hasan is set to be banned for four matches in the ongoing Bangabandhu Dhaka Premier League following his angry behaviour towards the umpires during a match on Friday, June 11.
Mohammedan Sporting Club cricket committee chairman Masuduzzaman confirmed this development to Cricbuzz adding that they will appeal to BCB so that they can dig why a player of his stature resorted to such behaviour.
''We have not got any official letter so far but we have learnt that the umpires committee have recommended four-match ban,'' Masuduzzaman told Cricbuzz on Saturday.
''We will appeal to the board and ask them that they must dig the matter and see why Shakib was prompted to take such a step. Naturally, it was not acceptable but at the same time we have to find out why it happened,'' he said.
Shakib, who was leading Mohammedan Sporting Club, against arch-rival Abahani Limited got into trouble with umpires on two occasions.
The first incident took place when his LBW appeal against Mushfiqur Rahim was turned down by umpire Imran Parvez and he furiously kicked the stumps and engaged in a heated conversation with the umpire. In the following over he lost his cool again as he uprooted the stump out of despair and even tried to fix the stump in the opposite direction after umpires called to bring the covers on due to rain.
Shakib also gestured indecently pointing towards Abahani's dressing room while returning back from the field after the game being stopped due to rain. Abahani coach Khaled Mahmud, who is also a director of BCB, was seen coming furiously towards him at that point but it did not turn ugly as batsman Shamsur Rahman came in between to cool things down.
Later, Shakib went to Abahani's dressing room and resolved the matter before returning to the field when the game resumed.
Shakib also apologized to the fans through a statement on his official Facebook page after the match.
"Dear fans and followers, I am extremely sorry for losing my temper and ruining the match for everyone and especially those who are watching from home. An experienced player like me should not have reacted that way but sometimes against all odds it happens unfortunately," wrote Shakib.
"I apologise to the teams, management, tournament officials and organizing committee for this human error. Hopefully, I won't be repeating this again in the future. Thanks and love you all," he added.
Earlier Shakib got away with a warning despite breaching the bio-Secure environment during the ongoing DPL as he decided to call two additional net bowlers from his own cricket academy during his individual training session at the BCB indoor training facility.
Alongside the two net bowlers, there was a teenage boy in the practice session who later revealed him to be a fan of Shakib.
Shakib is no stranger to controversy having previously been suspended by BCB for six months in 2014 for attitude problems that included a lewd gesture on TV, beating a spectator in the stadium, and travelling to the Caribbean Premier League without a clearance.
Shakib was banned by the International Cricket Council for two years in 2019, with one year of that suspended, due to his failure to report corrupt approaches from bookies.
