Repeated off-field issues have created trouble for Sabbir Rahman with the Bangladesh Cricket Boarch handing the cricketer a six-month ban from international cricket. The latest incident is Sabbir abusing a fan and threatening him on Facebook. The ban will be effective from Sunday(September 2, 2018).
Sabbir Rahman along with Mossadek Hossain was summoned by the board for a disciplinary committee hearing. Mossadek was called up following allegations made by his wife, that the player demanded 10 Lakh Bangladeshi Tk as dowry.
While no action was taken against Mossadek as the matter is still under investigation, Board went on to slap Sabbir Rahman with an International Ban.
