Michael Vaughan lashes out at 2-year-ban
Former English cricketer Micheal Vaughan took to Twitter and lashed out at Bangladeshi Cricketer Shakib Al Hasan asserting that no sympathy should be shown towards him. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced that Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been suspended from all cricket for two years after he accepted three charges under the ICC Anti-Corruption Code. Michael Vaughan, who has always been vocal about his view pertaining to the sport, in his Tweet stated that this should have been reported straight away and the tenure for the suspension should have been more.
No sympathy what’s so ever for Shakib Al Hasan ... Non what’s so ever ... In this era the players get briefed all the time about what they can & cant do and what that have to report straight away ... 2 yrs isn’t enough ... Should have been longer ...— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) October 29, 2019
Shakib banned for two years
The ban comes as a huge blow for Bangladesh cricket ahead of their much-anticipated tour of India, which comprises three T20 Internationals and two Tests, beginning with the shortest format games on November 3. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), however, said that doors will be opened for Shakib once his ban ends. "We hope he will come back as a better and wiser cricketer and serve Bangladesh for many more years when his sanction will be over," BCB said in a statement. "During the suspension, the BCB will continue to support his efforts at returning to cricket. "The BCB respects the ICC's decision and shares similar sentiments against corruption in cricket."
