Bangladesh all-rounder and former captain Shakib Al Hasan lost his temper during a Dhaka Premier League (DPL) game and can be seen in footage from a match kicking the stumps first, and later uprooting a whole set of them and flinging them to the ground.
Shakib, who is captain of Mohammedan Sporting Club, was first furious at the umpire’s decision to deny him an lbw appeal against Mushfiqur Rahim in the match against Abahani Limited. He was then angered by the umpire’s decision to take the players off the field with one ball remaining in the sixth over as the rain came down.

Shakib later apologised for his actions in a statement that he put up on his Facebook page. “Dear fans and followers, I am extremely sorry for losing my temper and ruining the match for everyone and especially those who are watching from home. An experienced player like me should not have reacted that way but sometimes against all odds it happens unfortunately,” he said.
“I apologise to the teams, management, tournament officials and organizing committee for this human error. Hopefully, I won’t be repeating this again in the future. Thanks and love you all,” he further said.
