Star cricket in Bangladesh Shakib Al Hasan there was a shocking disintegration on the field during a T20 home game here on Friday, kicking stumps and arguing with referees in horrific behavior, which he later apologized for calling it a “human error”.
Shakib’s anger defeated him during his team’s Mohammedan Sporting game against Abahani Limited. The match in the Dhaka Premier League was eventually won by his team by the method of Duckworth-Lewis.
Despite Shakib’s apology, kicking the stumps is as good as a level 3 crime and could lead to the suspension of a match for the former Bangladeshi captain.
“I am extremely sorry that I lost my temper and ruined the match for everyone and especially for those who watch from home. An experienced player like me should not react in this way, but sometimes, contrary to all this, unfortunately,” an official apology gave Shakib on his facebook page.
“I apologize to the teams, the management, the staff of the tournament and the organizing committee for this human error. We hope that I will not repeat this again in the future. Thank you and I love you all,” he wrote.
During the match held at Sher-e-Bangla Stadium, a Mushfikyur Rahim a foot before the appeal was dismissed by the judge led to the furious captain kicking the stumps.
On the second occasion, he ran from his middle position to uproot all the stumps at the end of the non-striker, when the two employees of the match called for a rain break with one ball left in the sixth over Abahani’s passes.
Footage of the incident has since gone viral, and he is believed to have been angry, as another delivery would ensure the completion of a minimum of six overs to get a result.
The match finally started and his team won easily.
He was also caught on camera when he got into an ugly altercation with former Bangladesh international and current BCB director Khaled Mahmoud Sujon.
The 34-year-old Shakib has scored more than 10,000 international runs and has chosen nearly 600 wickets in formats and is considered one of the best bowlers in modern cricket.
Earlier, Shakib hit the headlines for the wrong reasons in 2019, when he was slapped with a two-year ban suspended for a year for failing to report a corrupt approach.
