Apology softens hearts

Shakib Al Hasan's decision to appeal to the Bangladesh Cricket Board to reconsider his suspension has now put the ball in the BCB's court. While it is still not clear as to whether the board will bring about any modifications to the suspension at all, a large section of Bangladesh's cricketing community feels that Shakib, who publicly apologised for his behavioural misconduct yesterday, now deserves a shorter sentence. "He has apologised to the nation, which I think is a respectful...

BPL Fixing

Both ICC, BCB to appeal verdict

The International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) through a press release yesterday confirmed their intention to appeal the decision made by the BCB anti-corruption tribunal regarding the disciplinary procedures related to the 2013 Bangladesh Premier League.

Shakib 'has a severe attitude problem'

Shakib 'has a severe attitude problem'

The year 2014 for Bangladesh cricket so far, both on and off the field, has been shrouded in darkness. Yesterday's decision by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to impose a six-month ban on all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has added another chapter to Bangladesh's bad run. It was expected that the board was going to take stern action against the all-rounder but still the BCB president Nazmul Hassan Papon's words were heavy with emotion when he announced: “Our board has unanimously decided to ban him from competitive cricket for the next six months, both...

Come back with a smile

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Monday banned Shakib Al Hasan from all cricket for six months and barred him from playing in overseas competitions until the end of 2015. Was the harsh punishment inevitable for the champion all-rounder? Was it something that the whole nation tried to overlook time and again until it reached a point of severe suffocation that needed a little dose of inhaler in a serious attempt to breathe fresh air? It's a bit of both and...

'He crossed a line'

On the day when all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan was suspended from competitive cricket for six months there was a mixed reaction from Bangladesh's cricketing community. According to former national cricketer Athar Ali Khan it was a decision that the BCB were 'forced to take' and something that the player had brought upon himself. “To be very frank and honest I feel bad for Shakib, I feel really sorry for him. But on a different note as a player you also need...

SHAKIB'S trysts with controversy

October 2010: On 92 in the fourth ODI against New Zealand, umpires could not stop the disturbance at the sightscreen. Shakib ran towards the screen and abused the offender and threatened to hit him with his bat. February 2011: During Bangladesh's World Cup game against the West Indies Shakib reacted strongly after being booed and allegedly made a rude hand gesture at the spectators. He then blasted former national players for criticising Bangladesh's fall in the game. February 2014: Shakib displayed...

Arrogant Shakib

SHAKIB al Hasan has threatened to pull out of international cricket. Why? Because his arrogance and his newly found wealth seem to have overpowered his senses -- sense of nationalism, decency and of honouring the rules of the body that employs him, which is the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). This behaviour of Shakib hasn't come as a shock to me, because the malady of arrogance, self-entitlement and being above the law and protesting everything that goes against personal convenience plagues...

Shakib asked to join home camp

Shakib asked to join home camp

  Shakib was on his way to Barbados to participate in the Caribbean Premier League and will return to Dhaka from London over the weekend, reports ESPNcricinfo. "Shakib has been told to join the camp immediately," BCB's acting CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury told ESPNcricinfo. Chowdhury did not mention why the all-rounder was asked to return or whether he will be released in time for the start of CPL, from July 11. A decision on this matter would be taken at a board meeting on July 7, as there is a lack of clarity regarding the No-Objection Certificate Shakib was supposed to have obtained from the BCB to participate in the West Indies league, according...
