HIGHLIGHTS

  • Krishmar Santokie bowled a big wide and a no-ball which looked questionable
  • Sylhet Thunders have asked the Bangladesh Cricket Board to investigate the wide and no-ball
  • Santokie conceded 34 runs in 4 overs and picked 1 wicket in the match vs Chattogram Challengers

West Indies pacer Krishmar Santokie is under the scanner after he bowled a big wide and then overstepped to bowl a massive no-ball in the first match of the new season of the Bangladesh Premier League.

Krishmar Santokie, playing for Sylhet Thunders, bowled a big wide down the leg side in his third delivery and then two balls later, sent down a no-ball.

The extras raised eyebrows immediately. Sylhet Thunders team director Tanjil Chowdhury said he has asked the Bangladesh Cricket Board to investigate the wide and no-ball.

“The no-ball that he bowled is suspicious,” Chowdhury, one of 7 team directors in the league by BCB, said. “He (Santokie) is not yet called by the BCB but I have lodged my complaint. I verbally requested CEO and Morshed [BCB anti-corruption head] to investigate the matter[ no ball].

“We don’t have anything to do with the playing XI. It is up to the management and the coach. I asked the sponsors whether they interfered in the playing XI and they are refusing to say anything.

“Now we have to talk with the team management and know whether anyone influenced them to play Santokie because it seems he is associated with spot-fixing.”

Krishmar Santokie conceded 34 runs in 4 overs and picked 1 wicket. Sylhet Thunders, however, lost the match by 5 wickets after they failed to defend their total of 162.

Significantly, the Sylhet team director said he was also suspicious of the team sponsors and added they insisted on picking certain players during the draft – Tanjil said he was confused with the insistence.

“On the day of the players draft, there was a lot of conflict between us. Me and team director Sarowar Imran was convinced with certain decisions. The sponsors were insisting on taking a few cricketers and we were not sure why they are insisting to pick those cricketers,” he said.

“We had the chance to pick Nayeem Sheikh and other players. But they preferred to pick players like Sohag Gazi and Santokie. That is the reason we have started doubting them. I have informed BCB governing council members and the BCB president.”
