Dhaka Premier League: Bangladesh umpire quits after Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan’s on-field behaviour in DPL- Bangladesh umpire Moniruzzaman has decided to quit after a couple of unacceptable on-field behaviour by star allrounder Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah in the recently concluded Dhaka Premier League (DPL).   The cricketer was penalised TK 20,000 for his misbehaviour in match which featured Moniruzzaman as umpire.

“Enough is enough for me and I don’t want to do umpiring anymore. I have some self-respect and want to live with it. Umpires can make mistakes but if we are treated in this manner, there is no point in doing it anymore because I am not in it just for the money,” Moniruzzaman was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

“I was not involved in Shakib’s game. The way he behaved was something very hard for me to digest. In the Mahmudullah match, I was the TV umpire and watching the episode closely. It left me numb and at that point, I decided not to carry on with umpiring,” Moniruzzaman added.

In what comes as a shock to Shakib Al Hasan fans and cricket fans in general, the cricketer showed a never seen before avatar in a Dhaka Premier League match a few weeks ago. In a video that has emerged on Twitter, Shakib can be seen uprooting the stumps and threw them on the pitch after he reportedly argued with an lbw decision with the umpire. The shocking incident took place between Shakib’s Mohammedan Sporting Club vs Abahani Limited. He appealed for an lbw against Bangladesh teammate Muhfiqur Rahim. When the decision was overturned, Shakib expressed his anger by removing the stumps.
