Shakib Al Hasan has again landed in trouble as the country’s cricket board is set to investigate his social media post. He is accused of endorsing a sports betting company.
The ICC banned the star player for one year after he failed to report a corrupt approach from an Indian bookmaker.
As per laws in Bangladesh, there is a ban on promoting any gambling-related activities. According to a report in Cricbuzz, “BCB will investigate a recent social-media post from the all-rounder his tie-up with “Betwinner News”.
BCB president Nazmul Hassan said that Shakib would be served a show-cause notice.
“Board will never permit to endorse betting. That means Shakib didn’t take permission from us. The board will investigate whether he had signed a deal or not,” he said.
“He will be served show-cause notice, and a probe will be conducted since it is related to Bangladesh’s law. This is a serious issue; we can’t bank upon a Facebook post. If he is found guilty, we will take action,” he added.
