The three-member probe committee, formed to investigate the bizarre Second Division League match which saw a bowler conceded 94 runs off four balls, has informed that they would take three more days to complete the formalities before revealing their final report regarding the matter.
The committee, which has three heavy-weigh high offcials of the board in BCB directors Jalal Yunus, Akram Khan and Sheikh Sohel, was supposed to submit the report on Tuesday. However, due to the absence of Sheikh Sohel, who was in abroad, could not sit for meeting. [Read also: Hathurusingha not surprised at Mashrafe’s decision]
“Sheikh Sohel just has come to the country. Hopefully we’ll sit tomorrow (Thursday) to look into the matters,” informed Akram Khan to the media. “We’ll submit the report within two or three days, recommending exemplary punishments for those who will be found guilty.”
Akram added that they were also investigating an other match between Fire Fighters and India Road Krira Chakra as that became relevant. During the match, Taslim Hossain of Fire Fighters conceded 64 runs in his spell of 1.1 overs.
Earlier it had been decided during a BCB meeting on Last Saturday to investigate the match between Lalmatia Club and Axiom Cricketers after it hit international headlines, causing a discomfort to the cricket officials.
Sujon Mahmud, a Lalmatia bowler, gave away as many as 92 runs off four balls which according to the club officials was as mark of protest against poor umpiring throughout the season. The club said during the alleged match umpire did not even allow their captain to see the coin after toss.
Though Sohel was absent, Akram and Jalal had already interrogated the Lalmatia bowler Sujon Mahmud, along with two Axiom openers. The duo also took the version of two umpires of that match to get the complete picture of the incident.
