CCTV footage fails to give any indications
Within 12 noon on Saturday, the ground staff was asked to submit a report to the match referee to find out who broke the glasses of the Bangladesh dressing room. But the ground staff has informed the match referee that the CCTV footage doesn’t give any indications as to who caused damage to the visitors’ dressing room.
The ground management had been instructed by Broad to go through the video footage and report back to him. On Saturday morning, he was informed that CCTV cameras do not penetrate into the dressing room to find out exactly what took place.
There were eyewitnesses (dressing room attendants) who suggested that a senior Bangladeshi player had pushed the glass door forcefully causing the damage but the Match Referee refused to take a third party’s version into account and wanted the venue officials to make the claim. Since none of the officials had seen the incident, they declined to name any player.
On the other hand, the umpires were asked to study video footage of the closing stages of the game before deciding whether they should press charges against any player. and rightly so they have done it.
The skipper of Bangladesh Shakib Al Hasan has been fined 25% of the match fee and also earned 1 demerit point along with wicket keeper batsman Nurul Hasan Sohan who wasn’t in the playing XI but had some heated exchange of words with some Sri Lankan players after the end of the match.
