BPL 2022 – BCB issues Fortune Barishal show-cause notice after Shakib Al Hasan breaks bio-bubble



“The franchise should be held responsible for this and it is totally unacceptable,” BCB chief Nazmul Hassan says

The BCB has issued a show-cause notice to BPL 2022 runner-up Fortune Barishal after their captain Shakib Al Hasan broke the bio-bubble before the final for an ad shoot. Barishal initially said Shakib had stomach trouble when they were asked why he had missed the captains’ photoshoot at the Shere Bangla National Stadium on the eve of the final. But it later emerged Shakib had gone for a shoot and he was asked to take a Covid-19 test before playing the final.
BCB president Nazmul Hassan said the franchise needs to be held responsible for a bubble breach.

“The series or tournament that is played under the supervision of the BCB, here we have to follow strict measures,” Hassan told reporters after the final on Friday. “But this time the franchises were given all the responsibilities to maintain the protocol. The franchise were given a show-cause letter today inquiring about how he (Shakib) went on to breaking the bio-bubble.

“We have given clear instructions to all the franchises on how to maintain the bio-secure bubble. As they breached the protocol they were given a show-cause letter and I think the franchise should be held responsible for this and it is totally unacceptable.”

Shakib bowled four overs for 1 for 30 and scored a run-a-ball 7 in Barishal’s title chase of 151, in which they fell short by just one run. Shakib was, however, named the Player of the Tournament for his all-round show of 284 runs and 16 wickets in the BPL.
