Such incident will not be repeated on the ground or outside the ground, he promises

Beximco Dhaka captain Mushfiqur Rahim has apologized for his rude behaviour towards his teammate Nasum Ahmed during their Bangabandhu T20 Cup Eliminator against Fortune Barishal in Mirpur's Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.

The national team player came up with the apology in a post on his Facebook account on Tuesday.

He wrote: "First of all officially I would like to apologize to all my fans and spectators regarding the incident that happened yesterday [Monday] during the match. 

Assalamualaikum to all, First of all officially I would like to apologize to all my fans and spectators regarding the...

"I have already apologized after the game to my fellow team mate Nasum. Secondly I seek forgiveness from Almighty. I always remember I am a human being above all and the gesture that I have shown was not acceptable at all," he said.

"In shaa Allah in near future I promise it won't be repeated on the ground or outside the ground," Mushfiq concluded.

What happened?

On Monday, Mushfiqur Rahim created a very unwanted scene as the experienced campaigner lost his cool and twice showed an aggressive gesture  towards Nasum Ahmed during their eliminator match against Fortune Barishal.

The first incident happened during the 13th over of the run chase. 

Barishal batsman Afif Hossain struck a big six in the first ball off left-arm spinner Nasum before taking a quick single the following delivery. 

Both Mushfiq, the wicket-keeper, and Nasum, the bowler, chased the ball and the former reached there before colliding with each other. 

That incident brought out the rough visage of the diminutive man as he angrily showed a gesture of punching a much taller Nasum. 

Mushfiq, who has been playing international cricket for over a decade and a half, became even more aggressive during the second incident.

Well-set Afif, who was on 55, top-edged the last ball off left-arm paceman Shafiqul Islam in the 17th over and Nasum naturally went for the catch from short fine-leg position. 

However, Mushfiq also had the same intention and called the junior player to leave the catch for him. 

Nasum somehow avoided the collision and the man with the gloves held onto the important catch. 

But that did not appease angry Mushfiq and he went berserk at his younger team-mate. 

Perhaps, the cameramen around the ground were a lot more aware this time around and did not miss the chance to click the angry face and bizarre gesture of one of the icons in the country's cricket. 

Dhaka ultimately won and Mushfiq saw his team qualify for Qualifier 2 but the infamous image may haunt him and the country's cricket for many more seasons to come.
