so what's next. This is called "Churi Churi, Shina Juri".
They should better show cause the selectors and players for their non-performance. Ideally they should form a probe committee to verify Rafiq's aquisation.

Lipu says they did not want to make him upset during his last test. So they are sending it now.

You are hero as long as you perform!!!

BCB
Things could get right direction after Rafiq's explanation. Since Rafiq blamed BCB employee (i.e., BCB) of misdeed, BCB will first send show cause to Rafiq - understandable. Karon Dorshao means explain with reasons. BCB, I guess, wouldn't send the notice to selectors first after hearing comments from the complainant. They could initiate inquiry once they hear Rafiq's explanation. Let's see.

We are jumping our guns too soon. It may look like that a show-cause order is a bad thing, but it may turn out to be for good ONLY if Rafique can produce some evidence to back up what he said. But I don't think Rafique has any evidence to back up his accusation, he got emotional and said the obvious without any proof. Now, selectors are doing this to save their arse from Rafique's accusation. If this was not sent by selectors but by BCB, then I believe they want to do some sort of investigation.

Quote:
An order to show cause is a type of court order that requires one or more of the parties to a case to justify, explain, or prove something to the court. [1] Courts commonly use orders to show cause when the judge needs more information before deciding whether or not to issue an order requested by one of the parties. [2] For example, if a party requests that the court find another party in contempt of an existing court order, the judge will typically issue an "Order to Show Cause Re Contempt" to the party accused of being in contempt of court. At the hearing on the order to show cause concerning contempt the judge will take evidence from both sides concerning the alleged failure to comply with the court order. Appellate courts often issue orders to show cause to lower courts requesting that the lower court explain why the appellant should not be granted the relief requested by the writ or appeal. An order to show cause is always an interim order because it is never the first nor the final action in a legal action.

Rafique was the one complaining. I actually didn't appreciate him going about it just before the test match creating some unnecessary distractions. Anyways, now he can follow through his complains with the notice. If what he said has some truth behind it, obviously he will be the one come out smiling. No big deal. Lets just wait and see what happens before jumping to an conclusion.

Rafiq is still under contract which prohibits him to say anything to the media against BCB, seletors or the team (Code of Conduct). He definitly broke it. But at this point, I dont think Rafiq cares about the 2 monthes pay.

We were only hearing one side of the story all this time. Now comes the other side of the story. Drama will continue.

Is there any whistle-blowing law in BD? May be M Rafique can be protected under that law? This can only be done if he has evidence. Meaning 1) a supporter who was present during that time and attest to what Rafiq says, or 2) the accused confess. We know the accused would never confess be it true or untrue. So if M Rafique wants to stick around BCB and fulfill his dream then he better start contacting all those who got neglected due to politics and persue them to testify.

Why is shame on BCB and Lipu?

Put yourself in that position. What would you do? Someone talks bad about the organization, doesn't matter true or false, you can't sit and do nothing. Must investigate to clear your name or your organizations name. Showcause is the first step of that investigation. Again, put yourself in their shoes. One would be naive not expect a backlash.

We are bangalis. We don't have the culture to take criticism lightly. Espar-uspar koira felbo ajkay - that is the mentality.

Exactly. Why blame BCB? They are trying to sort things out. Show Cause does not mean punishing Rafiq, they need an explanation why he accused the selectors. BCB may take action against selectors if proven guily.

It's not about asking Rafiq to prove his accusations, the legal notice is served because he breached the code of conduct as he spoke to the media and criticized BCB.
BCB is not going to prove or disprove anything, it's only the breach of code of conduct which is the subject here, not the accusations made by Rafique.

I dont know why Rafiq is making it such a big deal for not selection him for certain tests: Did he forget:

1. He was sent home at least TWICE before the series was even over for fights among team members.
2. I remember he even got physical over Haba and haba even cried after the incident
3. He continuosly ignored first class matches, specially the away ones so that he can spend time building his dhaka residence.
4. He did not perform that great for last one/two year, against India he was totally out of sorts. His batting was non existence.

Just because he is a great does not mean he cant be dropped for underpermence or due to disciplinary action.

Now is he going to blame BCB or selectors for not making him a captain ever for the BD team? Rafiq is a legend, I would just retire in peace and let all the fuss go. Every coin has two sides, he was dropped for a reason and he should realize that.

Miraz explained nicely. I think any player under contract would get similar notice from BCB for similar action.

imagine if all the players under the contract starts talking to media and accusing BCB !!!

If Rafiq gets away breaching the contract, why can't others? What BCB will do with Rafiq shall become an example for future breaches of the same nature. BCB has to be fair.

Off course that does not take away anything, that Rafiq has done for the country. Lets not mix up
