Shariar Nafees handed suspended ban

ESPNcricinfo staff

Shahriar Nafees, the Bangladesh batsman, has been handed a suspended ban but will be part of the A side for their next match later this month. The announcement was made after Bangladesh Cricket Board president Mustafa Kamal met with chief selector Akram Khan and the disciplinary committee chairman Sirajuddin Mohammad Alamgir on Wednesday.

The A team's management had submitted a strong letter against Nafees after he showed dissent at an umpire's decision during a match of the Shafi Darashah tournament in Bangalore last month. He was sent home on the basis of the management's letter to the cricket operations committee.

Akram confirmed Nafees will be joining the Bangladesh A team next week to prepare for the four-day game against the West Indies' High Performance Centre side from September 22. Nafees had apologised for his actions at a hearing on Tuesday.

"The suspended ban will be in place for an indefinite period but if he [Shariar Nafees] does anything untoward in the future, he will be banned for six months," said Alamgir, who had his committee's recommendations ratified by the BCB chief.

Nafees had apologised for his actions at a hearing on Tuesday.

    Irrespective of how good a player is or how important he is for a team/tournament, he has to brought in disciplinary actions for wrongdoings to bring the balancewithin the team, otherwise it'll bite in the long run. Even if it is Shakib, I would welcome the action always. Good to see that Akram is strongly acting in this.

    @SylhetiBangladeshiCricketExpert4u...You're not really making much sense I mean there aren't any Bangladeshi players that play 'consistently' in Tests. Mind you he scored a Test century against a very strong Australia and more recently 97 against Pakistan but yeah like I said, neither Bangladesh player is consistent at Tests infact, none don't even average over 40 haha...very funny guy mate! :)

    @Ahmed Hussain. I don't quite agree with you when it comes to your delusion that Bangladesh is not a "Top Team" so to speak. Time in and time out, they arguably have proved that they have what it takes to be amongst the best. It doesn't really count whether or not they rank below cause every team climbs the ladder and Bangladesh is certainly following the conduit to supremacy..!

    The umpires are there to ''ensure and uphold 'fairplay". Their decisions are and should be taken by all cricketers to be final. Wheteher a batsman or fieldsman agree with an umpire's decision he/she has to accept it. If you feel you were given out wrongfully, then go in the dressing room and shatter your bat or punch aglass door, but for heaven's sake and for the sake of your cricket future do not show dissent to an umpire's decision. It would cost you more in the lonngrun.

    Good decision. BD have very few experienced & quality batsmen. Nafees is one of them. His awesome form in 2006 showed his class. But he couldn't b utilized for ICL then. Now it's time to focus on his improvement ahead of upcoming Test series.

    His behaviour was unacceptable but common a potential ban of 6 months? Bangladesh do not have much experience in the reserves so I don't understand who the BCB think they are. Bangladesh are not a top team by any means.
