Alongside Sabbir, the BCB disciplinary committee will also meet Nasir and Mosaddek
National cricketers Sabbir Rahman, Nasir Hossain and Mosaddek Hossain have been called for disciplinary hearing by the BCB. According to board president Nazmul Hasan, the trio has been asked to meet the disciplinary committee on Saturday over disciplinary issues accused against the three cricketers.
Nazmul sat with influential BCB directors, officials and national head coach Steve Rhodes to discuss preparation for the upcoming Asia Cup 2018 on Thursday. Besides agendas related to the Asia Cup the BCB boss also spoke about other issues including disciplinary issues involving the cricketers recently.
Batsman Sabbir was accused of threatening supporters via his official Facebook page during Bangladesh’s tour of West Indies which concluded earlier this month. The supporters were mocking Sabbir over his poor form on the field. The right-handed batsman has been axed from the national ODI squad and is set to miss the Asia Cup.
“Sabbir has been called by the disciplinary committee for a hearing (on Saturday). We will decide the course of action following the hearing. He is not in the Asia Cup squad and of course disciplinary issues related to him has affected his selection,” informed Nazmul to the media at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Thursday.
The BCB has been dealing with indiscipline from Sabbir for a long time now. The right-handed batsman’s saga of indiscipline started in 2016 during the Bangladesh Premier League. He was fined Taka 12 lakhs for breaking the team curfew. In 2017’s BPL and the cricketer was fined 40 percent of his match fee after verbally abusing the umpire. That fine amounted to Tk 1.5 lakh.
The year 2018 for Sabbir stared with a blow as the BCB banned him from domestic cricket for six months and also denied him a central contract as punishment for assaulting a young fan during a National Cricket League game in Rajshahi.
Alongside Sabbir, the BCB disciplinary committee will also meet Nasir and Mosaddek. Nasir has been the center of discussion in the past few months over a private matter that went viral social media. It is understood that the BCB has taken the incident seriously as a matter that has hampered the integrity of Bangladesh cricket and its cricketers.
Mossadek was accused of torturing his wife demanding dowry, earlier on Monday. Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Rosina Khan ordered the sadar upazila executive officer or UNO to investigate the case after admitting the charges brought by Mosaddek’s wife Sharmin Samira Usha on Sunday.
