DHAKA, June 11, 2021 (BSS)- The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) will take decision on Shakib Al Hasan issue based-on the report of the on field umpires and match referee.

Ace allrounder Shakib Al Hasan hogged the headline for his on the field misdemeanor as he kicked the stump at the bowlers end when umpires didn’t respond his appeal of a leg-before wicket in his side Mohammedan Sporting Club’s crucial match against Abahani Limited at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium today.

With Shuvagata Hom slicing Abahani’s top order, Shakib sensed a victory against the archrivals. Shakib who was lively from the very beginning of the game saw his leg-before appeal turned down firstly against Mushfiqur and he didn’t react then.

Mushfiqur looked to be in top touch after making 11 off five balls. But second time when he wrapped Mushfiqur’s pad with an arm ball, his strong appeal once again was turned down. Shakib went up to umpire and vented his anger by kicking up the stumps.

Mushfiqur’s dismissal could have effectively sealed the game for Mohammedan.

However five balls later when the dark clouds hovering over the grounds umpire asked the covers to be brought on but Shakib came in and threw down the stumps again before leaving.

“You see, a lot happens on the ground in the match between Abahani and Mohammedan, there is the lots of excitement, there was also some incident we got to see involving Shakib Al Hasan,” Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis (CCDM) Kazi Inam said here today.

“The match was streaming live on Facebook Live and YouTube Live. So you all got to see. It is unforgettable. In cricket, there may come heated moment but we always hope players keep the emotion under control all the time. Match referee and umpires will submit their report on the match and we hope the report will be available very soon. If someone breaches rules, action will be taken as per the rules.”
