Shakib Al Hasan once found himself at the wrong side of the disciplinary issue after the Dhaka Dynamites skipper was found guilty of breaching the BCB Code of Conduct. He was found to have violated Article 2.1.4 of the BCB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during a Match”.

The incident took place during Dhaka’s team’s BPL 2016 Qualifier 1 match against Khulna Titans. Shakib was reported by on-field umpires Nadir Shah and Khalid Mahmud, third umpire Masudur Rahman and fourth umpire Mahfuzur Rahman Litu after he over reacted to an overturned appeal off the fifth ball of the first over of the Titans’ innings bowled by Dynamites’ pacer Abu Zayed Rahi.

Shakib now will have to settle with a 20 percent fine on his match fees. In addition to the fine for the Level 1 breach, two (02) demerit points have been added to Shakib’s disciplinary record. The player admitted his offence and accepted the sanctions proposed by Match Referee ASM Roquibul Hassan and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing. Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 30 percent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.

While on-field issue might have bought some trouble for Shakib but he would be more than just happy as his team walked into the final after beating Khulna Titans in the Qualifier 1. A commendable bowling performance saw Shakib’s side wrapping up Khulna Titans for just 80 runs after setting a functional target of 141 to chase batting first.

The West Indies pair of Andre Russell and Dwayne Bravo played chief roles in the win claiming three wickets each and contributing heavily with the bat. Bowlers Abu Jayed, Sunzamul Islam, Mosaddek Hossain and Shakib al Hasan also played supportive roles and contributed with one wicket each.
