Earlier, Shakib Al Hasan had drawn extreme criticism after he lost his temper that sparked outrage among the cricket fans globally as he was seen kicking the stumps while arguing with the on-field umpire during the Dhaka Premier Division T20 league.

Shakib Al Hasan let his frustration out on the on-field umpire’s decision as he kicked and broke the stumps and began to argue with the officials.

Videos of the incidents brought storm all over social media with the former national captain trending top on Twitter.

However, he later extended an apology via his official Facebook handle. “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,” the message read.

“An experienced player like me should not have reacted that way but sometimes against all odds it happens, unfortunately. I apologize 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,” Hasan wrote.
