Shakib Handed One-Match Ban For Abusing Umpire

Dhaka: Nov.27; Star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan was handed a one-match ban Friday over a double foul-mouthed outburst during the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Twenty20 competition.

The 28-year-old, who is playing for Rangpur Riders, was found uttering abusive language after dismissing Sylhet Super Stars batsman Dilshan Munaweera on Thursday.

The world number one all-rounder was then seen directing offensive and abusive language towards umpire Tanvir Ahmed when his appeal against rival batsman Mushfiqur Rahim was rejected.

Shakib, who is known for his disciplinary problems, had been suspended by the Bangladesh Cricket Board for six months last year for a 'severe attitude problem'.

He was also handed a three-match ban last year for making a lewd gesture towards a cameraman during a ODI against Sri Lanka.
