Many Bangladeshi international cricketers are getting involved in scandals, that are putting Bangladesh cricket in an embarrassing position. Previously cricketers like, Al-Amin Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Shahadat Hossain have been involved in scandals that have been much publicized not only in Bangladesh but also internationally. Now fast bowler and a regular member of Bangladesh’s Test side Mohammad Shahid has joined the list. Last Sunday his wife Farzana Akhtar came to the BCB and lodged a complaint to the BCB president against her husband. In her complaint she said that Shahid had abused her physically and has extra-marital affairs with other women.
The BCB president is very sullen over the situation and has warned other cricketers to stay away from such scandals. He said,“I have said it from the beginning that being a good cricketer is not enough, you also have to be a good human being. We have tried very hard to keep the cricketers in control. When the cricketers are staying in hotels under BCB, we keep them under strict supervision. We have become much more strict than before. But the problems occur when they’re on vacation. We can’t handle their personal problems.”
Nazmul has said that if the cricketers don’t mend their ways, they will end up facing dire consequences.“We are aware of the incidents that have taken place. None of us have accepted it. Even on previous occasions we never supported such scandals. We have always taken action against them. We will do the same this time. We hope that everything gets sorted out. If not we will take even more strict action in the future.”
