Pair lead Warwickshire recovery as Derbyshire’s Conners claims four key wickets

Warwickshire 272 for 9 (Hain 77, Burgess 71, Conners 4-45) vs Derbyshire

Sam Hain and Michael Burgess led Warwickshire’s recovery on an evenly contested opening day of the LV=Insurance County Championship match against Derbyshire at Derby.
Hain made 77 from 161 balls and Burgess 71 off 134 after Sam Conners reduced the visitors to 105 for 4 in the Group 1 game at the Incora County Ground.

The 22-year-old fast bowler ended with 4 for 45 from 16 overs and Derbyshire claimed three wickets with the second new ball to limit Warwickshire to 272 for 9 at the close.

Cloud cover and a muggy atmosphere probably persuaded Billy Godleman to put Warwickshire in and he was rewarded with two wickets in the first seven overs.

Conners had struck with the first ball of the match at Worcester last week and he removed Will Rhodes and Pieter Malan in consecutive overs. The Warwickshire captain miscued a pull which lobbed to mid off in the fifth over and Conners then removed Malan’s off stump with an inswinging yorker.

Conners almost had a third in his sixth over when Rob Yates drove to mid on where a diving Luis Reece got both hands to the ball but could not cling on.

The light was poor enough for the floodlights to be switched on and Yates and Hain needed some luck to get through to lunch at 89 for 2.

Yates might have thought he had done the hard work but he was out for 37 in the fourth over of the afternoon session when Conners got some late away movement to have him caught at second slip.

Matt Lamb got away with a pull that just evaded mid on but when he repeated the shot against Conners, Reece held the top edge running across behind the bowler.

Hain now had to rebuild for a second time and, with Burgess, added 74 in 24 overs before he dabbed Reece to second slip.

Burgess played fluently to reach 50 from 89 balls and with Tim Bresnan, took Warwickshire to a first batting point before Alex Hughes nipped one away to have Bresnan smartly caught at slip by Wayne Madsen. A second was secured before Burgess was caught behind off an inside edge driving at Michael Cohen, the first of three late wickets that earned Derbyshire maximum bowling points.

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

Published

on


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.

Eng vs SL 2021 – Chris Woakes, David Willey, Liam Dawson back in England T20I squad

Trio back in contention as England seek cover for Stokes, Archer and Topley

England have recalled Chris Woakes, David Willey and Liam Dawson to their T20I squad to face Sri Lanka later this month. Woakes has not played T20 cricket for England since 2015 but comes in as one of three changes from the India tour in March, with Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and Reece Topley ruled out through injury.

With the T20 World Cup scheduled for later this year, England’s head coach Chris Silverwood said he wanted to look at “some of our experienced players who have not featured at this level for some time”. England have six T20Is scheduled this summer, as well as series in Bangladesh and Pakistan ahead of the T20 World Cup, as they look to pin down their plans for the tournament.

Woakes was a linchpin in the ODI side that won the 50-over World Cup in 2019 as well as being a regular candidate for the Test team, but has not featured in England’s T20I thinking for some time – despite his involvement at IPL, where he has played for Kolkata Knight Riders, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils.

Willey, elevated last year to Yorkshire’s T20 captaincy, last featured in the format at international level in 2019, shortly before losing out on a World Cup spot to Archer. He had claimed England’s second-best T20I figures – 4 for 7 against West Indies in St Lucia – a few months beforehand, and played every game in their run to the 2016 World T20 final.

Dawson’s most-recent England appearance came in 2018 but he would have been a candidate for the white-ball tours to South Africa and India over the winter had he not required surgery on an Achilles injury.

Stokes is set to continue his recovery from a fracture finger with Durham in the T20 Blast next week, and could return for the T20I series with Pakistan in July. Archer had surgery on his longstanding elbow problem last month and no timescale has been put on his rehabilitation, while Topley was ruled out of the entirety of the Blast after suffering a side strain.
