Bangladesh Cricket Board set to take legal action against Shakib Al Hasan
New Delhi : Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is now planning to take a legal action against the skipper Shakib Al Hasan after he allegedly violated the terms and conditions of the board.
According to a report in Cricbuzz, Shakib on October 22 joined Grameenphone, the local telecom giants as their brand ambassador.
A news report mentioned that Shakib inked deal with the telecom company one day after his team went on strike with 11-point demand; the strike ended on October 23.
According to the BCB players’ agreement, a cricketer under national contract cannot join a telecom company.
BCB President Nazmul Hasan has said that they will take strict action if Shakib is unable to provide a satisfactory reply. “He cannot make this agreement (with a telecom company) and why he cannot make this agreement is clearly stated in our contract paper,” Hasan told Bengali daily Kalerkantho.
"We are going into legal action. We cannot spare anyone in this regard. We will ask for compensation. We will seek compensation from the company as well as from the player. I heard about it (on October 23) and asked to sent legal notice to Grameenphone to claim compensation. I have asked to send a letter to Shakib for explanation. We must give him a chance to show that he didn’t break the rule. To us it seemed that it was something like ‘give a damn to the board’ and if that is the case we will take tough action," he added.
