Bangladesh pace bowler Al-Amin Hossain will be sent home from the World Cup after breaking team curfew on February 19 in Brisbane.
Bangladesh team manager Khaled Mahmud told ESPNcricinfo that the ACSU (Anti-Corruption and Security Unit) informed the national team that Hossain had stayed out past the 10pm curfew.
It has also been confirmed that the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) will launch their own investigation into why Hossain stayed out past curfew after they receive the manager’s report.
“Normally if a player has to stay outside after 10pm, he has to take the management’s permission,” Mahmud said. “We were not aware that Al-Amin left the hotel after that time, and were later informed by the ACSU of his transgression. He will be sent home as soon as possible.”
When asked if Hossain had been sent home since he was involved in corrupt activities, Mahmud denied it straight away.
