ECB announces ‘social media review’ of historic posts

News

Review will address historical issues, remind players of responsibilities and “help them learn”

The ECB has announced a “social media review” after admitting the sport’s attempts to prove itself inclusive have been “severely diminished” following the emergence of a series of historic tweets by players.

The episode was sparked by the re-emergence of comments made by Ollie Robinson on Twitter when he was aged 18 and 19. The tweets, which included sexist and racist material, came to prominence on Robinson’s first day as a Test player and jarred with the team’s commitment to combatting discrimination.

In the following days, numerous further historic tweets from high-profile players came to light which also looked at odds with the standards and values expressed by the current England team and ECB executive.

Coming at a time when the sport is desperate to promote a more inclusive image, it left the ECB board admitting in a statement on Saturday that its “aspiration to become a more inclusive and welcoming sport for all” was “severely diminished whilst discriminatory content remains in the social media space”.

The ECB board therefore confirmed a social media review designed to “address any historical issues, remind individuals of their personal responsibilities going forward, and help them learn lessons along the way”.

Bangladesh cricket – Shakib banned for DPL outburst: A timeline of Shakib Al Hasan’s disciplinary issues

Published

News

From run-ins with fans to groundstaff, Shakib Al Hasan has made headlines for the wrong reasons several times

Shakib Al Hasan has been banned for three matches following his blow-up at a Dhaka Premier League game, where he lashed out the stumps in anger twice during one match. This is not the first time he has been in the news for disciplinary issues. Here’s a look back at previous instances.

Anger at groundstaff, October, 2010
Shakib threatened to hit a member of the groundstaff with a bat for moving in front of the sightscreen during a Bangladesh-New Zealand ODI. The match referee gave him a warning but no further action was taken.

Gesture at crowd, March, 2011
Shakib made a middle-finger gesture towards the Shere Bangla National Stadium’s grandstand after the Bangladesh-West Indies World Cup match in 2011, a game after which, in a separate incident, angry fans pelted stones at the West Indies team bus following Bangladesh’s nine-wicket defeat. The photo of Shakib was published in several newspapers after it was shared widely on the internet. No action was taken.
Another rude gesture, February, 2014
Shakib was banned for three ODIs and fined BDT 300,000 (US $3800) by the BCB for pointing towards his crotch on live television, when the camera panned towards the Bangladesh dressing room during the ODI against Sri Lanka in Dhaka. Captain Mushfiqur Rahim requested the BCB to reduce the ban for the “best interests of the team”.
Alleged run-in with fan, June, 2014
Shakib allegedly beat up a fan who was apparently harassing his wife at the Shere Bangla National Stadium. The incident took place when there was a rain break during the first ODI against India in 2014. After the BCB held a hearing, Shakib told the media that he wasn’t aware that a player can’t leave the dressing-room area during an international match.
Text to coach, July, 2014
After he texted new coach Chandika Hathurusingha that he would quit international cricket rather than join a training camp, BCB summoned Shakib to Dhaka. He was in transit in London at the time, trying a catch a flight to the Caribbean to play the 2014 CPL. Days later, BCB banned him for six months for “serious misbehaviour” with Hathurusingha, and for the incident mentioned in the previous entry. “He has a severe attitude problem, which is unprecedented in the history of Bangladesh cricket,” BCB president Nazmul Hassan has said back then. But after Bangladesh’s poor performance in West Indies, the BCB reduced his ban to three and a half months in August that year.
Cusses an umpire, November, 2015
During a BPL match in 2015, Shakib blew a fuse at umpire Tanvir Ahmed, abusing him openly after Ahmed turned down an lbw appeal. He was suspended for one match and was fined BDT 20,000 (USD 256 approx).
The walkout threat, March, 2018
Bangladesh were irate when a no-ball for height was not given in the last over of their Nidahas Trophy match against Sri Lanka in March 2018. Mahmudullah, who was batting, argued with the umpires. Captain Shakib beckoned Mahmudullah to return to the dressing-room, in protest at the umpire’s decision. Eventually Mahmudullah took them to victory with a six, and some of the players celebrated with the nagin dance, a reaction to Sri Lanka players using the same celebration previously. Amid all the drama, a glass door had also been shattered in the Bangladesh dressing room. Shakib admitted that the players, himself included, had perhaps allowed their emotions to get the better of them. He apologised later, but the BCB didn’t make any public mention of their opinion of the incident.

The ICC ban, October, 2019

Days after he led a successful players’ strike against the cricket board, the ICC banned Shakib for two years for failing to report an approach from a bookie. He returned from this ban in January 2021.

Bangladesh domestic cricket – Dhaka Premier Division – Shakib Al Hasan gets three-match ban for DPL outburst | Cricket

The BCB has suspended Shakib Al Hasan for three matches and fined him Taka 5 lakh (USD 5800 approx.), having found him guilty of abusing the umpires, groundstaff and equipment during June 11’s Dhaka Premier League T20 match between Abahani Limited and Mohammedan Sporting Club. It was a level 3 offence under the BCB’s code of conduct, and Shakib accepted the sanctions.

In dramatic scenes at yesterday’s match, Mohammedan captain Shakib had kicked the stumps after umpire Imran Parvez turned down his lbw appeal against Mushfiqur Rahim, and, an over later, ripped up all three stumps and threw them to the ground after umpire Mahfuzur Rahman called for the covers as it started to rain. It remains unclear what prompted the latter incident, as Shakib’s team was well ahead of the equation as per the DLS method at that point.

An argument with the umpires and groundstaff followed, and Shakib also reportedly said something towards the Abahani dugout, leading their coach Khaled Mahmud to charge towards the Mohammedan camp. A war of words ensued and both men had to be dragged away.

After Mohammedan won the game by 31 runs (DLS method), though, Shakib looked to have resumed cordial relations with the umpires, and later apologised for his actions in a Facebook post.
