DPL 2021: Shakib Al Hasan banned for three matches and fined

- Advertisement -

Shakib Al Hasan has been banned for three matches of the ongoing Dhaka Premier League for his unruly behavior on Friday. He had shown dissent against the umpire’s decisions, not once but twice, kicking and uprooting the stumps during the match. He was leading Mohammedan Sporting Club in the game against Abahani Limited.

The all-rounder also got into a scuffle with the opposition coach Khaled Mahmud, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Director. However, Shakib had apologized to the officials, fans, and the teams for his conduct and admitted to having ruined the game.

What Shakib says after the act

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,” part of Shakib’s statement on Facebook read.

The video of Shakib Al Hasan’s actions had gone viral within minutes of the incident and many had slammed him for his conduct. The likes of Lisa Sthalekar and Virender Sehwag also reckoned that the veteran cricketer should’ve behaved properly and criticized him.

Shakib will miss next three rounds of DPL

Shakib Al Hasan has been banned for three matches and also fined BDT 5 lakh. The umpires were also told to submit the report regarding the incident and the Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis (CCDM) finalised the all-rounder’s punishment.

Accordingly, Shakib will now not be able to play in 8th, 9th and 10th round of the tournament. Going by the laws of the DPL, the 34-year-old has been accused of violating level three of which Shakib has broken two sections.

Shakib Al Hasan has been time and again in the news for all the wrong reasons over the last couple of years. His decision to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) while Bangladesh played Tests had created a little bit of ruckus as well. He was also banned for one year from international cricket by ICC for not informing multiple corrupt approaches during international matches.
