BCB to decide Jamal-Brothers fate

Update : 12 Nov 2013, 06:20 PM

The decision of the protest made by Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club after their Dhaka Premier League match against Brothers Union will now be taken in two-three days by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). It was decided after the Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis (CCDM) sat in a meeting with the board at the Bangabandhu National stadium yesterday.

After Brothers’ match against Abahani Ltd on November 7, the match referee Obaidul Haque Azam suspended Brothers captain Sohrawardi Shuvo for poor behaviour with the on-field umpires. Sheikh Jamal complained against Shuvo, who was suppose to be serving the suspension, but instead played against them on November 9. The Dhanmondi side lost that match by six wickets which prevented them from marching to the Super League, but as things stand if they are awarded with the points they will progress further.

Sheikh Jamal officials said they came to know about the suspension of the national discard at the middle of the game and that according to the bylaws they should be awarded full points of the game. However, both Sohrawardi and his club Brothers denied the suspension and said they had no idea of the matter.

CCDM sat with both Azam and Shuvo for a hearing and later sent their observation to the BCB for final decision, informed CCDM’s vice-chairman Nazmul Karim Tinku, also a newly elected BCB director.

“We heard both party’s version and then sent our observation to the BCB to take the final decision regarding this. We hope they would take the decision within 48 hours,” he said.

If the BCB could not take a strict decision in this regard, the league will see a delay once again. The BCB has a critical decision to make as two powerful directors of the board are involved with the clubs - AZM Nasir, president of cricket committee Brothers Union and Monjur Kader president of Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club.
