Shakib Al Hasan suspended for six months by BCB


Shakib Al Hasan has been suspended by the BCB from all cricket for six months and will not be granted an NOC to play in overseas competitions until the end of 2015.

The punishment was handed out because of Shakib's "serious misbehaviour" with Bangladesh's new coach Chandika Hathurusingha, and for his altercation with a spectator during the recent first ODI against India in Mirpur.

Shakib has been involved in several disputes in the recent past.

He had left for the Caribbean to play in the CPL without a valid NOC, and reportedly threatened to quit playing Tests and Twenty20 internationals when asked by Hathurusingha to return and join a training camp
