October 29, 2019 – A dark chapter of Bangladesh cricket. Shakib Al Hasan, the biggest star of Bangladesh cricket, was banned from hiding his conversation with the gambler. International Cricket Council (ICC), the governing body of cricket, banned the cricket star from all cricket for two years. The one-year ban was suspended. The rest of the year, the cricketer had to stay out of cricket.

This ban on Shakib ends today (Wednesday). So, today is the last day of the ban. Tomorrow will be Thursday (October 29) and there will be no more obstacles for him to play cricket.

Bangladesh cricket was hit by a big blow on October 29 last year. On October 28, the night of the day suddenly a buzz was raised, and the ban could be made by all-round cricketer Shakib. The news has been stirred up by cricket all over the country. Media workers gathered in Dhaka’s Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla Stadium for 12-13 hours. The fans were surrounded by the stadium. After a long wait, the evening came to a new dawn. Shakib was banned for two years for concealing his gambling offer.

The Indian gambler, Deepak Agarwal, was behind the leak of Shakib. The ICC banned Shakib from all crickets for two years on three charges. However, the sentence was reduced to one year for admitting mistakes.

He committed three offenses within paragraph 2.4.4 of the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU). He was banned as he did not inform the ICC about the offer of fixing two international matches and one IPL game.

Shakib, one of the world’s all-rounders, received the first match-fixing offer in the 2018 IPL, which was played in The Tri-Series against Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe in January 2018. But he did not give details to the ICC’s ACU.

The cricket star spent most of his time in the United States during the ban period. His wife, Umme Ahmed, gave birth to their second daughter. So, he spent the time with his family. But he helped the poor people of the country. He started a foundation in his own name and worked tirelessly. England sold the World Cup’s favorite bat to help people. He helped many, including food aid, buying corn kits, providing ambulances, and flood victims.

Shakib returned home after returning from a trip to Sri Lanka. He also performed a series of exercises on BKSP’s field after flying from the United States. He eventually went to the US after his Sri Lanka tour was postponed. But Shakib’s waiting period is over now. The T-20 League will begin on November 15. Bangladesh’s Shakib will return to the 22 yards with the T20 tournament.
