Own Correspondent, Dhaka, August 13: The uncomfortable situation created in Bangladesh cricket with Shakib Al Hasan is going to end. Shakib first verbally cancelled the contract with Betwinner on Thursday afternoon after a stern warning from the Cricket Board. After agreeing to BCB's conditions, he informed the matter in a letter. In the letter, Shakib mentioned that he was cancelling the contract.

Confirming the news of receiving Shakib's letter, Jalal Yunus, chairman of BCB's cricket management department, said, "He (Shakib) has given us a letter, informing us that he is cancelling the contract with Betwinner."

After receiving Shakib's letter, relief returned to the cricket board. However, Shakib will not be punished for breaking the rules by signing an agreement with an organization without informing the board? To this question, Jalal Yunus said, "The matter of complaint will come later. We gave him a letter to cancel the contract. Now he has done that and informed us and sent a letter."

'Betwinner' publishes all kinds of sports news including cricket. Shakib joined as the goodwill ambassador of this new sports-based news site. Serving as a goodwill ambassador for a sports website is not a bad thing. But the problem is that Betwinner News is a subsidiary of, which is a medium of online gambling. The matter was not taken well by the cricket board."

Finally, it is assumed that Shakib will remain in the Asia Cup squad as the contract was canceled due to the board's warning. Even the leadership of the T20 team can rise on his shoulders.
