Shakib Al Hasan has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. From asking Bangladesh not to play during Nidahas Trophy 2018, to be at odds with the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) and banned by the ICC for not reporting corrupt approaches, Shakib has frequently made headlines for all the wrong reasons.
On Friday, he was involved in another unwanted occurring. In the 40th match of the 2021 Dhaka Premier League (DPL) between Mohammedan Sporting Club and Abahani Limited, Shakib got tangled in controversy after showing dissent at the umpire’s decision.
Meanwhile reports are coming that the Khulna-born has been banned from four DPL matches. The Cricket committee of Dhaka Metropolis (CCDM) finalised Shakib’s punishment within a day of incident (June 12).
What Exactly Happened?
It all happened during a Dhaka Premier League (DPL) match between Mohammedan Sporting Club and Abahani Limited when the all-rounder showed dissent at the umpire’s decision in a rather distasteful manner. Shakib Al Hasan’s side Mohammedan Sporting Club set a target of 146 for Abahani Limited.
In reply, Abahani Limited began their chase on an abysmal note as they were reduced to 11/3 after three overs. Shakib came to bowl the fourth over and after bowling a dot all, Rahim dispatched him for a six and four.
Later in the over, one of Shakib’s balls hit Rahim on the pads and the all-rounder started appealing in an animated way. However, the umpire shook his head which made Shakib furious as he kicked the stumps and started venting out his anger and frustration on the umpire. Here’s the Shakib Al Hasan umpire fight video.
Subsequently, in the next over Shakib Al Hasan was once again at loggerheads with the umpire’s decision. Showing his dissent at the decision, he came walking aggressively towards the umpire and went on to uproot the stumps and smashed them on the ground in a furious way.
