Shakib aggression, poor umpiring talk of town
Dhaka Dynamites captain Shakib al Hasan produced a fresh controversy when the Bangladesh superstar charged the on-field umpire during their first qualifier of the Bangladesh Premier League 2016-17 season against Khulna Titans in Mirpur's Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Tuesday. The incident happened in the fifth ball of Khulna's innings when Shakib went furious at Pakistan umpire Khalid Mahmood after a leg-before wicket decision of Andre Fletcher went against Dhaka. Bowler Abu Jayed launched a huge appeal but Mahmood denied the call. Jayed became furious at him before being joined by his captain Shakib, who took the incident to a whole new level. Thankfully, Andre Russell intervened at just the right moment to stop the incident from worsening further. Later, Dhaka benefited from a couple of wrong decisions - a common scene in this year's BPL. Khulna opening batsman Hasanuzzaman was the first casualty of bad umpiring. It was seen that the full toss from Russell, that hit the batsman, was clearly going down the leg-side. But Mahmood had a different mind and raised his finger. Benny Howell was another casualty when he was given out LBW off the bowling of Sanjamul Islam, despite having a clear inside edge. This time the umpire was Nadir Shah, who has been known to favour Dhaka in BPL 4. These decisions proved to be crucial as Khulna went down to a 54-run loss in the first qualifier. They will get a second opportunity though when they face Rajshahi Kings in the second qualifier on Wednesday at the home of cricket in Mirpur. Following the end of the game, Shakib was duly fined 20 percent of his match fee and saw two demerit points added to his name. Once again, the role of the cricket board, along with the BPL governing council, has come into question as this type of situation, namely poor umpiring, is being repeated in BPL 4. Is this what we call the gentleman's game?
