Shakib’s suspension reduced

Ace all-rounder will be able to play home cricket from Sept 15

Star Online Report

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has reduced the suspension of ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan by over three and a half months, allowing him to return to the cricket from September 15.

In a BCB board meeting at Mirpur today, it was decided that Shakib will be available for selection from September 15 onwards.

However, the BCB’s decision to not provide the left-hander with no objection certificates to play foreign leagues until December 31, 2015 did not see any change.

Shakib who got involved in a series of controversies this year was suspended for six months on July 7. The left-hander appealed against the suspension two weeks later and also apologised for his behaviour.

The BCB took the decision in response to his appeal.
