A man ran in, uprooted the stumps at the bowler's end and ran towards the west. In the meantime, two more joined in, shoved a few fielders just slightly, while threatening the batsmen verbally. Stumps are gone, fielders running towards the pavilion in fear and the rest of the crowd chasing the three culprits. After a while the three emerge; bleeding on the face after the crowd beat them up furiously: a cricket match in Bangladesh. In the last decade, such happenings are not rare as it is quite 'honourable' for clubs to threaten or physically beat up their opponents, own players or the umpires if the match did not go according to their wish. Dirty practice to say the least but yesterday at the Dhanmondi Cricket Stadium, it was done in front of thousands of witnesses.
Brothers Union's notoriety lived up to expectations as their club boy Shahid ran inside the hallowed turf of a cricket ground and ran off with the stumps. After all the fracas that followed, umpires called for Rapid Action Battalion's (RAB) assistance to control the crowd. When asked, the Brothers officials pointed fingers at the ground staff as the perpetrators but when they were asked to continue play, they claimed that two of their players were 'missing'.
Umpires, in a little while, found one of them under the advertising board. Brothers' supporters then threatened their own players, most of whom live in the club tent in Gopibagh. The players, some of them ex-national players, were worried to say the least.
More than players' security, the ancient and immature mentality of clubs was exposed in Dhanmondi yesterday. Any number of players could have been hurt due to their inept thinking, that too at a Premier League match. The match referee left with the umpires, without mentioning the match decision, with anxiousness in their face.
The match events were dwarfed and Partex were declared winners by eight runs as per Duckworth-Lewis method. Earlier, Brothers scored 244 for six to which Partex were in striking distance of a win with their score on 239 for six in 48.2 overs.

Thank the Almighty lord that no one got injured and RAB was there. We as a nation have lost the art of respecting another human, period.

Somethings never change. I have seen first hand the "goons of Gopibagh" in action, causing havoc among the spectators, in and out the stadium areas many times during football matches.

Hmmm...left me speechless. Some horrible flashbacks of the football matches b/w Abahoni and Mohamedan. If our people are like this, we can never prosper. I'll stop asking any more questions, since there will not be an answer for any of it.

They should take some serious actions against these clubs who are responsible for such incident. It should never happen again.

New Age: Brothers Union face severe punishment

Brothers Union are facing severe punishment for their alleged involvement in a fracas during a Dhaka Premier Cricket League match, said the officials Bangladesh Cricket Board on Thursday.

The supporters of the club have allegedly foiled their match against Partex at the Dhanmondi Cricket Stadium at the time when the latter were verging towards victory needing just six runs off 10 balls with four wickets in hand.

On reading the news of the incident last morning, sports adviser Tapan Chowdhury instructed the Bangladesh Cricket Board to investigate

the matter and punish the culprits, said the sources in the BCB.

‘The BCB is concerned over the unhappy incident that took place at the fag end of the match between Brothers Union and Partex and has initiated an inquiry into the matter. An investigation will be conducted by the CCDM and necessary disciplinary action will be taken as per the tournament by-laws,’ said the BCB later in a media release.

The Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis (CCDM) officials said they will hold a hearing on the matter on Saturday and will punish the responsible persons.

‘Considering the version of the witnesses, it seems the supporters of Brothers Union are responsible for the incident. So it is almost sure they will be punished severely,’ said a CCDM official asking not to be named.

If they did this, sixteen point penalty and no home games next season.

No mercy.
