Shakib Al Hasan Facts

  1. Shakib’s glittering career has seen marred by several controversies but the one that brought him the most ignominy had occurred in February 2014. During the live broadcast of an ODI match, the cameras had panned towards the Bangladesh dressing room and he had inexplicably made an indecent gesture pointing towards his cr*tch. He was fined BDT 300k for the offense and handed a 3-match ban.
  2. In 2015, he had become the first cricketer ever to have been ranked number the number 1 allrounder simultaneously in all 3 formats of the international game in the ICC (International Cricket Council)’s official player rankings.
  3. In October 2019, he was suspended for 1 year and banned from all forms of cricket by the ICC for breaching its ‘Anti Corruption Code’. He had been contacted by bookmakers on 2 separate occasions in 2018, once each in Bangladesh and India, but had failed to report these approaches to the ICC‘s ‘Anti Corruption Unit’.
  4. Just before this ban was announced, he had led a short-lived players’ strike, primarily demanding higher salaries in the domestic first-class cricket system in Bangladesh.
