Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been banned for four matches of the ongoing Dhaka Premier League for his ‘unacceptable’ behaviour on Friday. He had shown dissent against umpire’s decisions, not once but twice.
During a fixture between Mohammedan Sporting Club and Abahani Limited, kicked and uprooted the stumps. He also got involved in a spat with the opposition coach Khaled Mahmud, who is also Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Director.
However, the all-rounder had apologised to the officials, fans, and the teams for his conduct and admitted to having ruined the game. The video of his misconduct had gone viral within minutes of the incident and many had slammed him for his conduct.
“I apologise to the teams, management, tournament officials and organizing committee for this human error. Hopefully, I won’t be repeating this again in future. Thanks and love you all,” Shakib Al Hasan said in a statement on Facebook.
Though the BCB is yet to release an official statement regarding his ban, the Mohammedan Sporting Club confirmed that Shakib Al Hasan has been banned for four matches. As a result, he will now not be able to play in the 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th round of the tournament.
