Shakib Al Hasan did not come to the trophy unveiling ceremony before the BPL final yesterday and gave birth to controversy. Shakib’s team Fortune Barisal informed that Shakib could not come to the official photo session due to stomach ailment.
The real reason was another, it was revealed later. Shakib did not come to the field and went to shoot an advertisement. According to BCB rules, if Shakib wants to join the team, Corona has to be negative. Shakib was negative in that corona test a while ago.
BCB doctor Manzoor Islam informed about the matter. In this regard, he said, ‘He has returned to the hotel following the coded protocol of the BCB. He came and tested the corona, but it turned out to be negative. ‘
As Shakib was not present at the BPL trophy unveiling ceremony yesterday, the team’s co-captain Nurul Hasan joined Comilla captain Imrul Kayes on behalf of Barisal. At the time, Barisal franchise chief executive Sabbir Khan said, “Shakib could not come because of stomach ache.
However, the fog was created by Nurul’s speech. Regarding the absence of Shakib at the press conference after the unveiling of the trophy, Nurul said, ‘Yesterday we had optional practice, we did. It seems to me that he (Sakib) is doing gym or something. Maybe that’s why he couldn’t come. That’s why I came here. It seems to me, the decision of the management. I don’t know much more than that.
After an hour of practice in Barisal, the team’s coach Khaled Mahmood could not explain the absence of Shakib. “It simply came to our notice then. Yesterday practiced. Did the gym today. I didn’t actually say that to get into practice. He knows his game. If you watch the whole BPL, Shakib has batted for three to four days. Worked like himself. Today I said I don’t feel well, I won’t go. I said okay. ‘
BCB did not keep biological protection in this BPL. This year’s BPL is running under the coronation policy of Managed Event Environment (MEE). Coronation policy has been relaxed a bit considering the mental health of cricketers. However, if a cricketer or support staff team leaves the hotel in case of emergency, he will have to join the team as Corona is negative.
