Shakib handed three-match ban, fine over umpire outburst

Shakib Al Hasan

Bangladesh star
all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been suspended for three matches and fined for
“showing aggressive behaviour towards the umpire” during a domestic
match, the country’s governing body said.

Shakib, the International Cricket Council’s top-ranked
all-rounder in one-day internationals, kicked the stump after an appeal was
turned down by the umpire during a match between Abahani Limited and Mohammedan
Sporting Club in Dhaka on Friday.

He later pulled out all three stumps and flung them aside
after the umpire halted the game because of rain.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) found Shakib, who
captains Mohammedan, guilty of two counts of misconduct and suspended him for
three upcoming matches in the Bangabandhu Dhaka Premier Division T20 Cricket
League.

He was also fined 500,000 taka (US$5,900).

“Shakib was found guilty of conduct that is contrary to
the spirit of the game after showing aggressive behaviour towards the
umpire,” the BCB said in a statement Saturday.

The 34-year-old also brought the game into disrepute through
the use of offensive language and reckless conduct with the umpires, the BCB
added.

Shakib wrote on Facebook that he was “extremely sorry
for losing my temper”.

“An experienced player like me should not have reacted
that way but sometimes against all odds it happens unfortunately.”
