BCB summons show cause notice for Shakib’s absence in photo session


CRICDOT DESK : The two captains of Barisal and Comilla were scheduled to attend the trophy unveiling ceremony just before the final of the eighth edition of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

Comilla captain Imrul Kayes was present at the trophy unveiling ceremony but Barisal captain Shakib Al Hasan was not present. He took part in the shooting of the advertisement, excluding the trophy unveiling ceremony.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has issued a show cause notice to the Barisal franchise for this reason.

BCB president Nazmul Hasan Papon told reporters after the BPL final on Friday. The BCB chief also said that Shakib broke the biological safety zone as he left the hotel before the final.

Instead of Shakib taking part in the shooting of the advertisement, Nurul Hasan Sohan was on behalf of Barisal at the trophy unveiling ceremony on the eve of the final. Barisal lost to Comilla Victorians by 1 run in the final.

At the end of the final in Mirpur, Nazmul Hasan Papon said, “The responsibility of such an incident of Shakib is more on the franchise. But this time it was the responsibility of the franchisees. That did not happen under the BCB.

He further said that Barisal has been asked to show cause as to how Shakib broke the biological protection zone. We instructed the franchisees on how to comply with the biosecurity zone. It’s broken, that’s why notice has been given.

Nazmul also said that no concession will be given to Shakib Al Hasan, it is not possible to do anything in the middle of the tournament. The tournament is over, I’m sure I’ll do it now. My point is (in some cases) it can’t be different. The responsibility of the franchisees was more here.
