BCB toughens Nafees stance
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) took a harsher stance regarding disciplinary action against left-handed batsman Shahriar Nafees as president AHM Mustafa Kamal was not happy with the recommendation of the disciplinary committee.
The 'suspended sentence' on the left-handed batsman remained but as per the new decision a six-month ban and financial penalty will be imposed on Nafees if he makes the same mistake in his future career.
The announcement was made after Kamal met with chief selector Akram Khan and the disciplinary committee chairman Sirajuddin Mohammad Alamgir on Wednesday.
The disciplinary committee's earlier decision on Tuesday stated that a two-match ban will be enforced if Nafees repeats the offence within the next six months.
“We made the changes after discussing the matter with our president (AHM Mustafa Kamal),” said Alamgir.
After this decision the till recently out-of-favour batsman is now available for selection and chief selector Akram Khan said yesterday that they will include the left-hander in the A team for the series against the West Indies High Performance team which arrived yesterday.
Nafees, captain during the Bangladesh A team's tour of India, was sent home before the third match due to a breach of disciple and to date had not been considered for selection.
