It seems that cricketers around the world are trying their ‘best’ to get into the front papers for all the wrong reasons. With the news of Ben Stokes’ Bristol brawl still fresh, three of Bangladesh cricketers have attracted negative attention. The three in question are Taskin Ahmed, Shafiul Islam, Nasir Hossain; who have visited the casino despite some serious losses against South Africa.
Bangladesh, whitewashed by South Africa in the three match ODI series, now face some internal problems. The trio were spotted at a casino in East London. Not even 3 hours had passed after their 200-run loss against South Africa, these three hit the casino & returned to their hotel at 10.34 PM — 34 minutes after the time stipulated by the team management.
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB)’s President Nazmul Hasan said, “We will definitely investigate the matter and [take] appropriate action. Let us get the report from the team management after the tour. If it was a matter of one player we could have taken a drastic step but as there are three cricketers involved and we need some time.”
With Bangladesh getting decimated in South Africa, things just keep getting from bad to worse for The Tigers who will start the 2-match T-20 series tomorrow at Bloemfontein.
