DPL 2021 – BCB fines Sabbir Rahman and Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club manager BDT 50,000 each
The technical committee also warned Elias Sunny after a hearing on Wednesday evening
The technical committee held a hearing on Wednesday evening, after which they also warned Sunny.
“After an extensive hearing session the Technical Committee has decided to take the following disciplinary measures: fine of BDT 50,000.00 each for Shabbir Rahaman of Legends of Rupganj and Sheikh Jamal’s Manager Sultan Mahmud.”
Sunny had told ESPNcricinfo on Wednesday that Rahman had abused him during the June 13 match, and the June 16 incidents were a continuation of that.
“Sabbir started abusing me when I was batting against Rupganj on June 13,” Sunny said. “I asked him thrice whether he himself understood what he was saying, but he kept repeating it. I got angry, after which the umpires had to separate us. But he kept calling me “kalo” (black, referring to his skin colour) repeatedly from the outfield. We won the match so I didn’t react too much.
“During today’s (Wednesday’s) match, when we were fielding, Rupganj’s bus had arrived near the BKSP 3 ground. He started teasing me with the same “kalo, kalo“. I didn’t react at first. But shortly afterwards, he threw a stone at me. I maintained the protocol by telling the umpires. Play was stopped for a while. I also spoke to the match referee.”
