He said, “Tomorrow (Sunday) I’ll check the report and then we will seat on Monday. If we think he (Sabbir Rahman) should be called then we will call him.”
He further said, “In this incident Sabbir is convicted of two misconduct; the first one is to assault a teenage spectator and then to behave badly with the match officials. I am very much surprised finding such a star cricket behaving so rudely with a boy; perhaps the lad came to watch the game as a fan of Sabbir.”
The disciplinary committee vice chairman also indicated the nature of punishment will be extensive.
“I can’t say now what will come through but I say the punishment will be substantial indeed,” he said. Sabbir’s case is being investigated under level-4 offence.
Apart from physically assaulting the teenager, Sabbir aggressively behave with match referee Showkatur Rahman when he called him to investigate the incident.
