Shakib Al Hasan and controversies go hand in hand these days. The Bangladesh all-rounder's temper once again overshadowed cricket on Tuesday in a match in the Bangladesh Premier League. The game was between Fortune Barishal and Rangpur Riders when the controversy occurred as Shakib stormed into the ground just before the start of the second innings.

After restricting Riders to 158, Barishal's openers Chaturanga de Silva and Anamul Haque came to the crease to begin the chase. However, before the innings could start, Shakib seemed agitated while standing near the boundary. From the looks of it, it seemed Shakib wanted Anamul to take the strike but the clear reason was not revealed.
Soon after, Shakib stormed into the ground in frustration and had an animated talk with both the umpires. The opposition team's skipper also got involved and after a minute-long chat, the all-rounder went back to the dugout.
