    Shakib Al Hasan

    Ace Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan recently lost his cool in the ongoing Dhaka Premier League T20 competition. The incident took place when Mohammedan Sporting locked horns with Abahani Limited in the Shere Bangla Stadium in Dhaka.

    Batting first Mohammedan posted 145 runs in their quota of 20 overs riding on Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudul Hasan’s crucial knocks. Shakib chipped in with 37 runs while Mahmudul played a crucial knock of 30 runs from 22 deliveries.

    In reply, Abahani were reduced for three for 9 within just 3 overs before Shakib Al Hasan had an outburst at the umpire. Bowling from around the wicket, Shakib Al Hasan bowled a straight ball which was completely missed by Mushfiqur Rahim as it rapped him on the pads. The all-rounder appealed for an LBW against Mushfiqur Rahim which was turned down by the match official.

    It was enough to tick off Shakib Al Hasan, who furiously kicked the stumps in anger. The 34-year-old was then seen angrily arguing with the umpire as the entire Mohammedan Sporting Club team surrounded them.
