Robiul Islam banned for 3 years
Former Bangladesh cricketer Robiul Islam has been banned for 3 years by Satkhira District Sports Association.
Robiul has been banned for three years due to misconduct, as per reports. Satkhira District Sports Association’s sub-committee chairman Anindita Rai signed a letter which was sent to the fast bowler.
In the letter, it was mentioned that after a meeting on March 5, it was decided that Robiul has been banned from all sports activities for 3 years. He misbehaved with the team after not getting a place in the side and according to the latest update, it was known that he also misbehaved with the pitch curator.
The fast bowler was given a warning before for misconduct and he was also asked for an explanation. But Robiul didn’t inform anything and as a result of that, he was given a 3-year ban.
Only a few days ago, the fast bowler announced his retirement from international cricket. The 32-year old pacer played 9 Tests, 3 ODIs and 1 T20I for Bangladesh.
His debut Test in 2010 didn’t go to plan as he went wicketless and a chink in the run-up was evident. He worked hard on both, returning to the Test side a year later in Harare where he bowled a long spell on the second day to bring Bangladesh back into the game. But he remained a Test specialist, and his best performance coming in the first Test in Harare in 2013 when he took nine wickets in the game, taking the first six Zimbabwe wickets in the second innings.
