Shakib Al Hasan's controversial actions during the match between Mohammedan and Abahani in Dhaka Premier League T20 has caused a stir. The unpleasant incidents are being discussed not only in the country but also outside of it. The Bangladesh star all-rounder got into a scuffle with the opposing team's coach Khaled Mahmud Sujan after he became furious with the umpire's decision and kicked the stumps and later on, in a separate incident, uprooted and threw the stumps on the ground.
These incidents have divided the cricket fans of the nation into two groups. How logical is this division? Is there any reasonable link between Shakib's unprecedented behavior and allegations against umpires in domestic cricket? What price may he have to pay in this case?
