Shakib Al Hasan

In search of a new hero

It's been eight months since Bangladesh last tasted a win in one-day cricket. Truth be told, very few could have predicted the treacherous slide that the Tigers have gone through ever since their dramatic four-wicket victory over New Zealand in Fatullah last winter. In a rare occurrence, the Tigers chased down 307 without any help from their most-sought after batsmen. Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal did not feature in that game, while captain Mushfiqur Rahim was caught at square-leg...

Coach not concerned about Shakib

Bangladesh head coach Chandika Hathurusingha apparently doesn't want to shed much light on the suspended all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan ahead of his team's challenge on the Caribbean tour. The Sri Lankan appeared before the media after his charges' last practice session before the Eid break yesterday at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur and made it clear that he was looking forward to making a fresh start. "I am not frustrated, that's all your statement. I don't know and I can't...

Separate plan for Shakib

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has formed a separate practice plan for suspended all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan in a bid to keep the player fit. The left-hander met with Bangladesh coach Chandika Hathurusingha yesterday to know more on his training schedule. Shakib, who has been suspended from all forms of cricket for the next six months, however, is allowed to train at the Bangladesh Cricket Board's headquarters. This provision was made clear by the BCB president Nazmul Hassan Papon on July...

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...

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...
