Shakib Tuesday was handed a two-year suspension, with one year of that suspended, from all forms of professional cricket by the ICC after the cricketer accepted three charges of not reporting corrupt approaches

Bangladesh Cricket Board will make efforts to help Shakib al Hasan cut down his suspension imposed by the International Cricket Council. 

Ace all-rounder Shakib Tuesday was handed a two-year suspension, with one year of that suspended, from all forms of professional cricket by the ICC after the cricketer accepted three charges of not reporting corrupt approaches. 

BCB is mulling providing Shakib support, despite the fact that the ICC sanction had come in agreement of non-appeal of the decision.

“In accordance with Code Article 7.2, neither Mr Al Hasan [Shakib] nor the ICC shall have any right of appeal” was mentioned in the ICC verdict, which was disclosed publicly.  

The Bangladesh cricket fraternity was shaken with the imposed sanction. 

Questions were raised as to why an experienced campaigner like Shakib did not follow his duty of reporting the approach by one Deepak Aggarwal not once but thrice while there are many who believe the one-year ban is a bit on the harsher side.

“BCB has a limited scope here because the cricketer involved has gone into an agreement [with ICC] of non-appeal of the sanction. However, the BCB is still looking into the possible scope, the legal team is already working on it. We first need to understand if we actually can do anything [in cutting down Shakib’s punishment],” said BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury to the media Thursday.

Following Shakib’s suspension, the BCB had to face the dilemma of naming captains for Bangladesh’s Test and T20I side currently touring India. 

After an emergency meeting, the board handed the baton to Mominul Haque for Test and Mahmudullah for T20I, a night before the team travelled to the neighboring country.

Both Mominul and Mahmudullah has been handed the responsibility as captains for the series only, and the BCB is yet to determine full time captain/s for the longest and shortest format of the game. 

Mashrafe bin Mortaza is leading Bangladesh in ODIs.

“We [BCB] needed a prompt decision on Shakib’s replacement; we needed captain for Test and T20I. The decision was jointly taken by the board members. The board later will make a decision on full time captains,” informed the BCB CEO.
