Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hasan has announced that head coach Chandika Hathurusingha sent him a message, in which Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has threatened to quit representing the national team in Test matches and ODIs.
Al Hasan’s decision is likely to be a result of the fact that he was recalled to Bangladesh while on his way to play for the Barbados Tridents in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
“I have received a letter in this regard,” Hasan told the Bengali daily Prothom Alo. “I don’t understand how he [Shakib] can say such a thing. I want to speak to them in person. If this is indeed true, nobody will be spared. There will be no compromise on discipline.
“There is very little possibility to give the NOC [No-Objection Certificate]. He has broken the discipline. We are very strict in this regard. The board will take a decision on giving him the NOC in the July 7 meeting.”
