Anger outburst of Shakib costs ban and financial fine


Mohammedan Sporting Club and Abahani Limited met in the 40th match of Dhaka Premier League at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Friday 11th June. Mohammedan, led by world-class all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, won the toss and elected to bat first, and scored 145 runs. After that, batting for 146 runs, Abahani lost 3 wickets for 9 runs against their arch-rival Mohammedan. Nazmul Hossain Shanto and Mushfiqur Rahim were trying to save the team from danger.

Shakib Al Hasan picked up the ball in the 5th over for bowling. Abahani scored 21 runs for 3 wickets by that time. The last ball of the over hit the pad of Abahani captain Mushfiqur Rahim. Shakib applied for LBW, but umpire Imran Parvez Ripon did not respond. The umpire has the right to make his own decision. But everyone is shocked by what happened after. Shakib was dissatisfied with the umpire’s decision, the Mohammedan captain angrily kicked the wickets and tore off the non-strike stamp.

Shakib did not stop just breaking the stamp. The world’s best all-rounder was seen saying something by looking at the umpire in an angry voice. He was looking with anger at the on-field umpire.

Then Shakib caused another incident. After 5 balls in the 6th over, the umpire called off the game due to rain. The Mohammedan captain did not like that decision either. Shakib ran from mid-on, picked up 3 stamps, and threw them on the ground. It seemed in his attitude that he could not accept the decision to stop the game.

When the umpires stopped the game, not a drop of rain fell. But the sky was black with clouds. So Shakib probably couldn’t accept the umpires’ decision to stop the game before the rain started.

As Shakib left the field and returned to his dressing room after the rain stopped playing, some Abahani supporters at the Grandstand made some comments about him. In response, Shakib also made a gesture with his hand. Abahani coach Khaled Mahmud Sujan rushed out of the dressing room towards Shakib. However, the players and officials of both the teams grabbed them before creating an embarrassing situation. Later the misunderstanding also came to an end.

Sujan thought that Shakib had given him some obscene gestures. But Shakib confirmed that he did not point to Sujan, but to Abahani supporters who made unpleasant remarks.

Due to all these, match referee Morshed Chowdhury ordered Shakib Al Hasan to be fined Tk. 5 lakh with a 3-match ban on June 12 (Saturday). Shakib also accepted the punishment. For this reason, no further hearing will be held in this case.
