Shakib apologises for ugly on-field incidents



Shakib Al Hasan, the Mohammedan captain, has apologised for losing his temper during an intense clash against Abahani Limited in the DPL T20.

The all-rounder first lost his cool when umpire turned down an lbw appeal against Mushfiqur Rahim while Abahani were chasing 146 (later revised to 76 in 9 overs). He kicked the stumps right in front of the umpire. In the next over, threw them on the pitch in anger over umpires’ call to stop play for rain.

Shakib then had verbal altercation with Abahani coach Khaled Mahmud Sujon, who is also a Bangladesh Cricket Board director.

Right after the match which Mohammedan won by 31 runs by DLS method, Shakib sought forgiveness to tournament officials in a statememt, saying it was a ‘human error’.

“Dear fans and followers, I am extremely sorry for losing my temper and ruining the match for everyone and especially those who are watching from home. An experienced player like me should not have reacted that way but sometimes against all odds it happens unfortunately. I apologise to the teams, management, tournament officials and organizing committee for this human error. Hopefully, I won’t be repeating this again in the future. Thanks and love you all,” Shakib wrote on his official Facebook page.
