THE Bangladesh Cricket Board has levied a record fine on two na­tional team play­ers for what it called “se­ri­ous” breaches of dis­ci­pline af­ter they re­port­edly en­ter­tained fe­male guests in their ho­tel rooms.

Pace bowler Al-Amin Hos­sain and bats­man Sab­bir Rah­man were both fined around US$15,000 for “se­ri­ous off-field dis­ci­plinary breaches” dur­ing the on­go­ing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Twenty20 tour­na­ment, said the BCB in a state­ment late on Novem­ber 29.

It gave no de­tails of the charges against the play­ers, but the Prothom Alo daily re­ported on­line that they had taken fe­male guests to their ho­tel rooms dur­ing the tour.

“The play­ers have been re­minded of their re­spon­si­bil­ity as na­tional crick­eters and have been warned that any rep­e­ti­tion of sim­i­lar acts of in­dis­cre­tion in the fu­ture will re­sult in a harsher penalty,” the BCB said.
