Shakib Al Hasan

Shakib Al Hasan has been banned yesterday by ICC for 2 years after found guilty of not reporting three incidents of corrupt approaches. Following this, the Bangladeshi icon has had to step down from the MCC – the custodians of cricket laws.

”…Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can today confirm that Al Hasan has stepped down from his involvement with the MCC World Cricket committee,” the club stated in a press release.

“We are sorry to lose Shakib from the committee, where he has made a great contribution over the last couple of years. As guardians of the Spirit of Cricket we support his resignation and believe this was the right decision,” Mike Gatting, Chairman of the World Cricket committee, said.

Shakib is set to miss the upcoming t20 series with India, IPL 2020 and also the t20 World Cup. Bangladesh cricket’s morale is speculated to be crushed after this shocking happening.
