The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) expressed their regret over the team’s behaviour during a Nidahas Trophy match against Sri Lanka on Friday night. The Twenty20 International at the R. Premadasa stadium in Colombo descended into chaos following an umpiring decision and the BCB said that it has warned it’s players and stressed to them the importance of upholding the spirit of the game. Bangladesh did go on to beat Sri Lanka by two wickets and will face India in the final of the tri-nation T20I series on Sunday.
“The Board accepts that conduct of the Bangladesh Team in certain instances was unacceptable on a cricket field,” the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said in a statement.
“The Bangladesh Team members have been reminded of their responsibility in upholding the spirit of cricket at all times,” it added.
