The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is taking a tough stand on the issue of Shakib Al Hasan’s contract with Betwinner News.com, which is still under investigation. The decision will be taken according to the guidelines of the board president Nazmul Hasan Papon. BCB Disciplinary Committee Chairman AJM Nashir said this.
One-on-one advertising and commercial deals. Shakib Al Hasan is unstoppable even outside the field. From the bus conductor to the warrior of Arabia – how many cricketers have been seen taking leave from the tour of Zimbabwe. But Shakib is in trouble after joining as the goodwill ambassador of Betwinner News.com. BCB’s comment – A contract with any such organization is against their ideology.
The board is looking into the whole matter. There have been indications of inflexibility even in the case of the country’s best cricketer. The country’s cricket governing body is expecting a satisfactory explanation from Shakib, who is currently in the United States.
BCB Disciplinary Committee Chairman AJM Nashir said, after knowing Shakib’s explanation, the Board President will give a guideline. We will take decision according to that guideline. The board is seriously investigating the matter. Players should be aware of the fact that they are exposed to so many ads. should be selective. The Board must be notified prior to any advertisement. We can make it a law.
The Board will determine how many or what types of advertisements players may participate in
Analysts also expect more discretion from a high profile cricketer like Shakib. Rising BD acting editor MM Kaiser said, “When you become an iconic character of the country, you have to consider a lot of things. There is a big ethical issue here.
The Asia Cup squad announcement is stalled because of the decision regarding Shakib. The Bangladesh team has been formed by the selectors for the tournament which starts on August 27 in the United Arab Emirates. However, they are still not sure who will be the captain of that team.
Although Shakib’s name is at the top of the captain’s short list. Policy makers do not have the same confidence in Mahmudullah Riyad’s leadership as before. Nurul Hasan Sohan, who suddenly came to the discussion, is also out of the field due to injury. Choosing Shakib was a very easy decision. But, his contract with Betwinner has made the situation confusing.
