It remains to be seen what disciplinary action will be taken by BCB or DPL for Shakib’s actions.
Notably, Shakib Al Hasan has pulled off the ongoing Pakistan Super League. The cricketer was banned by the ICC for failing to report a corrupt approach by an alleged Indian bookie during a tri-series involving Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. He returned to action with IPL 2021 for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). However, BCB has denied him visa for the remainder of IPL in UAE.
