Krishmar Santokie no-ball discussion an ‘internal thing’, says BCB chief executive

The BCB has kept deliberations on – and discussions into a possible investigation into – Krishmar Santokie‘s massive no-ball “internal”, after alarm bells went off across the cricket world on the BPL’s opening day. Social media was understandably abuzz, with the image of Sylhet Thunder bowler Santokie going over by several inches during their match against Chattogram Challengers in Dhaka being shared around.

BCB’s chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury said that that the board wouldn’t make a public comment on the matter, but he did mention the steps that have already been taken to guard against corruption.

“Any anti-corruption matter is dealt internally, so it won’t be wise to comment on this matter. We have already deployed anti-corruption officers with every BPL team,” Chowdhury told ESPNcricinfo.

Sylhet captain Mosaddek Hossain said in the post-match press conference on Wednesday that he was unaware of the distance by which Santokie had overstepped, which came in the same over in which the bowler had bowled a big wide down the leg side.

ESPNcricinfo has learned that once the no-ball was brought to the attention of the Sylhet team officials, they expressed their shock, but they didn’t discuss it among themselves or with the players and coaching staff in any great detail.

Santokie has since become the only talking point in an otherwise dull start to the BPL, which for the first time in its seven-year history is being run by the BCB without the involvement of franchises.
