Bangladesh’s senior and star cricket Shakib Al Hasan has once again been surrounded by controversies. This time it has cost him a social media post in support of the betting company. The Bangladesh Cricket Board has decided to investigate his recent social media posts in support of the betting company. Significantly, in 2019, the International Cricket Council (ICC) imposed a one-year ban on Shakib for not reporting a corrupt offer from an Indian bookie.
Promoting or supporting any form of betting activity is prohibited according to the current Bangladesh rules. According to a Cricbuzz report, “A meeting of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) was held on Thursday in which it was decided to investigate the all-rounder’s social media post announcing his partnership with the betting company.” BCB President Najmul Hassan said that Shakib will be given a show cause notice. Shakib has taken over 12,000 runs and around 650 wickets in nearly 400 international cricket matches for Bangladesh.

Najmul said, “There are two things. There is no possibility of taking the first permission as we will not give such permission. We will not allow anything related to betting. It means they didn’t ask us to give permission. Secondly, we want to know whether they have signed the agreement or not. This issue was raised in the meeting and we said how can it happen because it is impossible. If this has happened then you have to ask them immediately. Issue notice to them and ask how all this happened as the board does not allow it. It is related to betting and we will not allow it.

The BCB president further said that, ‘Some people say that this matter is not related to BetWinner. That’s why we can’t take any decision right now. We have given messages to gather information about this soon. The view of the Board is very clear in this matter. We cannot allow anyone to do this. Before taking any decision, it is important for us to know what he (Shakib) has done. Not only cricket, it is not allowed anywhere in our country. This is a serious matter. We can’t do anything just on the basis of Facebook posts. Inspection is necessary. If anything is wrong then the board will take appropriate action.
