Sunny could be banned if found guilty by the court
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Nazmul Hasan Papon has opened up on Tuesday regarding the latest incident with Arafat Sunny, who is now jail custody and was arrested for allegedly breaching strict internet laws after his so-called girlfriend, who also claims herself to be his wife, accused him of uploading sensitive photos on fake Facebook account.

A Dhaka court on Tuesday rejected Sunny’s bail pleas and sent him to jail. Sunny has been defending himself from the beginning saying all the allegations brought against him are fake. But according to the BCB President, if the national cricketer is proven guilty, he mighy have to pay the price, for the board could even brand a lifetime ban on him.
“We are well aware of Sunny’s incident. In last two years, three cricketers went to jail. The board never supported any of them, and we will not do in the future as well. We are always very strict in such issues, and maybe we will have to be more strict in the future,” said Papon. [Read also: Sunny lands in jail]
He also added, “In recent time, we gave two cricketers (Sabbir Rahman and Al-Amin Hossain) financial penalty for similar incidents. But if anyone is proven guilty from the court, then our step will also be more strict. If any cricket gets punished by the court, then we don’t need him in the team. That player would directly be banned from the side.”
