Conceded 92 runs in just four balls, Bangladesh cricket player banned for ten years 

A Bangladesh cricket player was banned for ten years by the country's Cricket Board for conceding 92 runs in just four balls.

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) imposed the ban on the player after he was found guilty of deliberately throwing wides and no balls in protest against the umpire.

Sujon Mahmud of Lalmatia Club bowled 13 wides and three no-balls in one over, all of which reached the boundary.

Following the incident, Lalmatia Club was barred from the competition. The club's coach, captain, and manager have also been punished with a five-year ban from the Dhaka Second Division League.

In the match took place last month, Lalmatia was dismissed for 88 runs. Sujon, who bowled first over for the club, conceded13 wides and three no-balls all of which reached the boundary giving an easy win for the opponents in just four legal bowls.

The BCB has also banned another club bowler Tasnim Hasan from playing for ten years and blacklisted his club Fear Fighters.

"We have found in our investigations that the bowlers bowled wides and no-balls deliberately to damage the image of our cricket," the board's disciplinary committee chief Sheikh Sohel told a press briefing.

Lalmatia Club secretary Adnan Rahman, meanwhile, said that Mahmud bowled wides and no-balls deliberately to protest against poor umpiring.
