Bangladesh Premier League: Pakistan player takes female guest to room, let off with warning
Around 18 Pakistani players, were given NOCs by the Pakistan Cricket Board to take part in the BPL
New Delhi: A player of current Pakistan cricket team faced embarrasement but escaped punishment in the Bangladesh Premier League after he was let off with a warning for taking a female to his hotel room in Chittagong.
The allrounder, who has been a decent performer for Pakistan, was pulled up by the organizers with another overseas player from another country after security officials found a female guest in his room.
"The organizers had advised the players to not invite female guests to their rooms. In the case of this Pakistani player he was advised in particular about a foreign national girl who was on the watch list of the anti-corruption sleuths in the BPL," one source aware of the developments told PTI.
The report also claimed that the security staff had to strictly ask the player kick the girl out.
"The matter was hushed up on the intervention of top cricket officials but the BPL organizers are also not happy with his overall behavior," the source claimed.
Around 18 Pakistani players, were given NOCs by the Pakistan Cricket Board to take part in the BPL which ended on Friday with Dhaka Dynamites winning the final.
"The Pakistani player escaped any financial penalties as he was an overseas signing," the source said.
This is not the first instance such an incident had happened. Earlier two members of the Bangladesh team, Al-Amin and Sabbir Rehman were invloved in similar doings.
