Steve Smith baredfrom Bangla PL

December 20, 2018

Vishwas Gupta in Cricket Age, 20 December 2018, with this title “Steve Smith barred fro BPL by Bangladesh Cricket Board”

Australia captain Steve Smith, who has been serving a one-year ban post his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal, suffered another blow after the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) banned the right-hander from participating in the upcoming edition of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). The move came after franchises participating in the tournament expressed reservations over Smith’s inclusion in the league.

What didn’t go down well with the franchises was the fact that Smith was signed from outside the draft – a move which went against the laws of the tournament. The franchises first discussed the concern with BPL’s governing council and the matter was handed over to the BCB to take a final call.
