The Bangladesh Cricket Board has fined two cricketers for entertaining females in the hotel rooms. This is a serious breach of discipline considered by the Cricket Board of Bangladesh. They have been fined around $15000 for breaching the discipline during the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League 20-20 tournament.
The BCB has not given reason why these two players have been fined but the Prothom Daily has reported that they had taken female guests to their rooms during the tour. As a national players they have been reminded their duty and have also been warned that any repetition of similar acts of indiscretion in the future will result in harsher penalty.
The BPL is similar like Indian Cricket League and there were some allegations made for match fixing which prompted the authorities to suspend the meet for 2 years and in the current 7 franchises are playing in the current edition which also have Chris Gayle from West Indies, Shahid Afridi from Pakistan and Kumar Sangakkara from Sri Lanka.
This time the BCB has imposed highest fines on the Bangladeshi players on disciplinary grounds. In case of Al- Amin’s he will have to pay 50% of his total BPL contract money and in case of Barisal Bulls he will have to pay 30% of his payment from the Rajshahi Kings.
And not just this BCB has also fined Sabbir and Afghan cricketer Mohammad Shahzad 15% of their match fees over in field bust up. Shahzad is even banned for two matches because he nudged Sabbir with the bat when he was celebrating his dismissal during a match.
