Earlier, a video of Shakib was making a storm in the social media platform Facebook. The video, which went viral on Tuesday afternoon, shows ace all-rounder Shakib involved in a heated conversation with a supporter.
Shakib said on his latest post, “Dear fans and followers, it has come to my notice that a video clip has been uploaded of me and a so called “fan” arguing in our hotel lobby after grueling match against the West Indies. The clip does not convey the entire sequence of events and shown out of context.
I, like my teammates, was exhausted after back-to-back matches and just wanted to go back to our rooms. We were carrying our own equipment and bags and my hands were full so I was not in a position to give out autograph at the time. I, along with my teammates, usually try to spend our times with our fans and also share moments by taking selfies and giving out autographs. But fans also need to understand that we are human beings and give our all in the field fighting for our national colors. Are we not allowed to be busy or tired? We understand and appreciate your support for the team and us and we will always give it our all to ensure that we honor it on and off the field. However times like this, sometimes makes the entire struggle and hard work unbearable and difficult to cope with.
My humble request to you is that you don’t take it personally when one of us can’t meet your requests, as the situation we are in might be different from what you are seeing. Please do not rush to make judgment or form opinions about us without trying to understand whether we are in a good mood or bad mood. I love my fans and I play for them whether its for the national team or any other league team, but at the same time I expect respect, love and most importantly understanding form you all. I know some people (who follow me or not) will try to make an issue out of nothing, but this petty mentality needs to change if you expect us to do better. The matches are difficult as it is and we don’t need this added pressure. From one human being to another, thanks for understanding.
Meanwhile, a long sustained dislocation on little finger of Shakib will need surgery informed BCB doctor Dr Debashish Chowdhury . According to the BCB doctor, all-rounder has no trouble in playing but the cricketer has to deal with severe pain and receive injections which is only a temporary solution. Shakib had picked the injury on his left little finger during the tri-nation ODI series in January this year.
