According to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), Sabbir Rahman, a Legends of Rupganj cricketer, and Sultan Mahmud, the manager of Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club, were both punished for their role in an incident that occurred on Wednesday. When the duo was found guilty of using racist language during a Dhaka Premier League (DPL) game, they were each fined BDT 50,000.
In recent weeks, the Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club filed an official complaint against Sabbir Rahman for making racial disparaging statements towards the club’s player, Elias Sunny.
On Thursday, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) announced the formation of the technical committee of the Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis (CCDM), a BCB wing, and declared that Sabbir Rahman and Sultan Mahmud will be fined. The players, coaches, and match officials that were participating were all present at the virtual hearing.
