The Bangladesh Cricket Board on Monday suspended all-rounder Sakib al Hasan from all kinds of competitive cricket for six months for what the Board said ‘a severe attitude problem’ that directly affects the team.
The BCB also decided the player will not be provided with any no-objection-certificate to play any kind of tournament overseas until December 31, 2015, effectively barring him from the franchise-based Twenty20 across the world.
‘Dear Fans, Ramadan Mubarak! I am truly overwhelmed by all the love and support I have received from you in the past and even more so now,’ Sakib wrote in his official facebook page.
‘In this moment of truth, please know from the very bottom of my heart that I am who I am because of your undying love and support and the colours of our flag,’ he said.
‘I play every moment keeping this love and emotion with me. My country means more than anything else to me and I intend to fight for my country and my fellow countrymen at every opportunity I get,’ he added.
Love you all, -Shakib.
