Bangladesh Cricket Board on Saturday handed a three-match ban in and a fine of BDT Five Lakh to Shakib Al Hasan.
”He was sanctioned under level 3 for the two incidents that he was involved and for that he is banned for three matches and fined BDT TK Five Lakh,” CCDM chairman Kazi Inam told reporters.
”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.
”Our board president called us and he is very much concerned and he wants to know the root cause behind it. We have a board meeting after three days and he had made a committee to investigate the matter,” he said.
“We will sit with all the captain and manager of the DPL clubs and would like to know if they have any objection regarding the ongoing tournament and take note of that,” he said.
“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.
