DHAKA: Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), has conveyed their deepest frustration over the incident of country’s premier performer Shakib Al Hasan being banned by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
BCB President Nazmul Hassan, MP said in a statement,
“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 program.”
ICC has banned Shakib from all formats of the game for two years with one year of that suspended, for accepting three charges of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code.
Mr. Nazmul Hasan also hoped Shakib to be back in action for Bangladesh for a prolong period of time once the suspension will over.
“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,” he said.
“The BCB respects the ICC’s decision and shares similar sentiments against corruption in cricket,” he added.
