The Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League T20 Technical Committee will not take action regarding the no ball bowled by Sylhet Thunder pacer Krishmar Santokie on opening day, Committee Chairman Raquibul Hasan has said.

Santokie came on to the radar of the authorities after he bowled a suspicious wide and no ball in the same over of the match against Chattagram Challengers on Wednesday. 

The margin of the wide and no ball were so large that Sylhet Thunder Team Director Tanjil Chowdhury told media he had asked the BCB to look into the incidents.

Addressing the media at Sher-e- Bangla National Stadium Saturday, BBPL T20 Technical Committee Chairman Raquibul said: “The Technical Committee will not do anything [regarding the Santokie no-ball]. The incident falls under betting or match fixing criteria, so it is up to the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU). 

“An official of the board [BCB Director Tanjil Chowdhury] has brought the matter up. That was a huge no ball and I saw Amir [Mohammad Amir of Pakistan] doing it in Lords. It doesn’t fall under our jurisdiction. I cannot comment on this,’’ the former Bangladesh captain added.

Raquibul also said the incident was not mentioned in the captain’s report following the match on December 11, but doubts will be dispelled if the BBPL Governing Council arranges a hearing.

“If they [the BBPL GC] make arrangements for hearings, he [Santokie] has to explain it there. They have to look at the footage and his track record. He also played the next match and did not bowl well in one over. This is under the Anti-Corruption Unit. I was the match referee in that match, but I didn’t get any report regarding the incident,’’ he added.

 The ongoing special edition of the BPL T20 was in hot water before it had even begun. According to media reports, at least two of the team sponsors had been reported to the International Cricket Council Anti-Corruption Unit for illegally approaching cricketers. The BCB is informed of the matter, but is yet to make a statement.

The BCB had come up with this reformed edition of the BPL T20 following a dispute with the franchises from the last edition. In place of franchises, the board decided to involve sponsors to fund the teams and run the tournament on its own.

The BCB was in disagreement with the franchises over of a number of issues, including revenue sharing and long term regulation of the tournament to maintain continuity. According to the BCB, the franchises will be back from the next edition of the BPL T20.
