Bangladesh Cricket Board

Appeal response after Eid

Shakib Suspension

Appeal response after Eid

A decision regarding all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan's appeal against the suspension imposed on him by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) will be taken after Eid, informed BCB president Nazmul Hassan Papon yesterday. Speaking at a ceremony organised to congratulate newly-elected ICC President AHM Mustafa Kamal at a city hotel, Papon said that he wanted...

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. Six out of the nine individuals charged with corruption during the BPL were cleared by the anti-corruption tribunal. Dhaka Gladiators owner Shihab Chowdhury, who was slapped with a 10-year ban, was the only one found guilty. The individuals who confessed...

Just Dhaka and Ctg?

The Bangladesh Cricket Board's decision to host the entire Zimbabwe series in only two cities --Dhaka and Chittagong -- has brought to the fore an alarming question. With eight internationally recognised stadiums in the country and with a total of eight international games to be played, why is it that only a small portion of the nation gets the pie? Of the six remaining -- Dhaka and Chittagong will host the matches -- there are at least three cities which...

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...

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...

Asked by BCB, Shakib returns

Asked by BCB, Shakib returns

In line with the directives of Bangladesh Cricket Board, all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan today returned home from London on his way to Barbados without attending the upcoming Caribbean Premier League (CPL) there. Talking about his decision to take part in the CPL without No Objection Certificate (NOC), Shakib said there might be a misunderstanding...

Kamal ascends to ICC presidency

Kamal ascends to ICC presidency

Former president of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) AHM Mostafa Kamal yesterday became the first Bangladeshi to take over the reigns of the ICC's presidential role. Kamal, who was vice-president from 2012 to 2014, succeeded Alan Isaac and by doing so became the 11th president of the International Cricket Council.  The announcement was made during the ICC's Annual Conference in Melbourne yesterday. An ICC press release quoting Kamal, also the planning minister of the government of Bangladesh, stated: “This is a memorable and historic day for Bangladesh cricket. On this day 14 years ago, Bangladesh became the 10th Test playing country. Today, a Bangladeshi becomes the 11th President of the...

Shakib unaware of rules!

Shakib unaware of rules!

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is expected to take a hard line against all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan for breaching ICC's code during the first ODI between Bangladesh and India on June 15. As per the code Shakib is expected to get a fine ranging between Tk 5,000 to Tk 300,000. However, a BCB source...
