Shakib, a veteran of nearly 400 international games with over 12,000 runs and nearly 650 wickets, will be serve a showcause notice, according to BCB president Nazmul Hassan.
“There are two issues. First and foremost, there is no chance of obtaining permission because we will not grant permission. “If it involves betting, we will not grant permission,” Nazmul quoted as saying by the website. ” “That means he did not seek our permission. Second, we need to know whether he actually signed a contract.” On Thursday, BCB held a meeting and made the decision to investigate his social media post.
“The issue was raised during the meeting, and we asked how it could happen because it is impossible. If this occurs, contact him right away. Because the board will not allow it, serve him with a notice and ask him what happened. We will not allow it if it is related to gambling. That is something we have stated today “Nazmul continued.
Nazmul promised to conduct a thorough investigation because it involves the country’s laws.
“First, we must learn what he has done. This (betting-related activities) is not only prohibited in cricket, but it is also illegal in this country. This is a serious problem. We cannot rely on Facebook postings or similar methods; we must investigate. If this is true, the board will take the necessary actions “He finished.
