Shakib Al Hasan Kicks and Throws Stumps After Arguing With Umpire

Bangladesh senior cricketer Shakib Al Hasan kicks and throws stumps after arguing with the umpire during a league match of the ongoing Dhaka Premier T20 Cricket League.

Shakib Al Hasan Fights With Umpire

A Twitter user uploaded a video of the incident, slamming Shakib Al Hasan for his unsportsmanlike behavior.

The incident occurred when Shakib Al Hasan was bowling the fifth over during the Mohammedan Sporting Club vs Abahani Limited Dhaka Premier League game.

Bowling from around the wicket, Shakib Al Hasan bowled a straight ball which was completely missed by Mushfiqur Rahim as it rapped him on the pads. The bowling team, along with Shakib, quickly went up in appeal, but the umpire quickly gestured not out.

It was enough to tick off Shakib Al Hasan, who furiously kicked the stumps in anger. The 34-year-old was then seen angrily arguing with the umpire as the entire Mohammedan Sporting Club team surrounded them.

Despite the deliberations, the umpire refused to budge from the decision and play went on.

In another video, Shakib was seen uprooting the stumps and smashing them on the ground, taking out every bit of his agony. It remains to be seen whether or not the BCB decides to give Shakib a slap on the wrist with a fine or match suspension.

Shakib has had a torrid time with the bat in the ongoing DPL. In the first six matches, he managed only 73 runs at an average of 12.16. The all-rounder also bagged a couple of ducks and was in awful touch even in the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka last month.

However, in the match against Abahani, he managed to score 37 runs off 27 balls with one four and two sixes before Mohammad Saifuddin dismissed him. Shakib is set to miss the second leg of the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) as he is unlikely to get a NOC from the BCB.
