Guwahati, June 12 (NKTV): Bangladesh Cricketer Shakib Al Hasan has been banned for four matches in the ongoing Bangabandhu Dhaka Premier League (DPL), following his angry behaviour towards the umpires during a match on Friday.
Shakib Al Hasan was also imposed with a fine of five lakh Taka for his misconduct.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and the CCDM announced the ban and fine a day after the incident. CCDM chairman Kazi Enam Ahmed said that Shakib had been banned for four matches of the DPL, three matches in domestic cricket and fined Tk 500,000 for violating Level 3 of the Code of Conduct.
It may be mentioned here that Shakib, who was leading Mohammedan Sporting Club, against arch-rival Abahani Limited got into trouble with the umpires on two occasions during the match.
The first incident took place when his LBW appeal against Mushfiqur Rahim was turned, following which he furiously kicked the stumps and engaged in a heated conversation with the umpire. In the following over, he lost his cool again as he uprooted the stump out of despair.
Shakib later apologized to fans through a statement on his official Facebook page after the match.
