MNA Editorial Desk: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said skipper Shakib Al Hasan should have informed the International Cricket Council about the match fixing offer.
“It’s clear that Shakib made mistakes and he realised that,” Hasina said at a media briefing in Dhaka on Tuesday.
Shakib allegedly hid a match fixing offer as per the probe report of the anti-corruption and security unit of the ICC, the media reports.
Bangladesh plans to travel India without Shakib for the three T20I and two Test matches, scheduled to start on Nov 3. The new development has confirmed Shakib’s non-availability for the tour.
“There’s nothing much the government can do about the ICC,” Hasina said.
