In the incident of heated argument between Rangpur Riders’ captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and Chittagong Vikings’ pacer Subashis Roy, both of them have been warned by match officials. On Friday, match referee Niamur Rashid Rahul assured the matter.
Match referee, further said, “Two cricketers acknowledged their mistakes. Match officials called both of them after the match and warned. No actions will be taken against them as they acknowledged the misdeed and thus they are freed from counting any demerit points.”
Niamur Rashid also said there is nothing to say about a cricketer like Mashrafe Bin Mortaza. Subashis also has no previous record of indiscipline.
In the seventh match of the fifth edition of the Bangladesh Premier League, Rangpur Riders was chasing the target of 167 runs against Chittagong Vikings. In the 17th over of the match, Riders’ skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza defensed a Yorker from Subashis Roy.
Subashis fielded in his own delivery and attempted to throw at the striker’s end. Mashrafe said him to return to the bowling end but Subashis emerged fuming and ran towards the national team captain.
Viking’s team mates Tanvir Hider and Zimbabwean recruit Sikander Raza both tried to pacify Subashis Roy but he was acrimonious.
Later Bangladesh national team skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza tried to protect the junior mate saying it is he who should say ‘sorry’.
