Shakib will be allowed to play starting on October 29, 2020
The cricket world was shocked to find out that Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh’s ace all-rounder, was suspended for two years after a match-fixing incident. The decision was final when the player failed to report the instances of corruption to ICC’s Anti Corruption Unit (ACU).
BCB President Nazmul Hassan hopes that Bangladesh’s best cricketer will learn from this and come back a better, wiser player, and continue to lead the team for years to come. He was also surprised that Shakib Al Hasan committed these acts which ‘weren’t in his nature’.
‘While the BCB is shocked and extremely disappointed that an experienced player like Shakib had failed to report corrupt approach on three occasions, at the same time we are pleased that he has cooperated fully with the ICC ACU and has pledged his commitment to its education programme’.
‘We hope he will come back as a better and wiser cricketer and serve Bangladesh for many more years when his sanction will be over. During the suspension, the BCB will continue to support his efforts at returning to cricket. The BCB respects the ICC’s decision and shares similar sentiments against corruption in cricket’, said Hassan.
The Bangladesh tour of India will take place in the whole month of November. To find out more about it and different cricket matches, visit Betwala’s page.
