Shakib fined Tk5 lakhs, banned for three DPL matches

Ace all-rounder Shakib al Hasan has been suspended for three matches and fined Tk5 lakhs for two Level 3 breaches in the ongoing Bangabandhu Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League Twenty20.

Shakib was found guilty of abusing the match officials and vandalizing equipment during the game between Mohammedan Sporting Club Limited and Abahani Ltd at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium Friday.

Mohammedan captain Shakib has been found guilty of breaching the Bangladesh Cricket Board's Code of Conduct twice, which the cricketer accepted.

“We were waiting for the report from the playing conditions team, which involves match referee and match umpires. Based on the report there were two incidents, one during an LBW appeal in over 4.6 where Shakib had kicked the stumps (after umpire said not out). Another incident is from over 5.5 where the umpires had called the covers because of the rain. Here Shakib had removed the wickets,” said Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis chairman and technical committee member Kazi Inam Ahmed to the media during a press conference Sa****ay.

“For the two offences he [Shakib] has breached Level 3 twice. Based on that, he has been sanctioned a three-game suspension and fined Tk5 lakhs. We did not require a hearing on this issue with Shakib as he has admitted to the breaches, agreed to the sanction and has signed the papers,” the BCB director added.
