The cricket fraternity had barely overcome the Ben Stokes street-brawl incident when a group of Bangladesh cricketers managed to draw attention for wrong reasons. Bangladesh have already been whitewashed by South Africa in the three-match ODI series. The margins of defeat were humongous in every single match 10 wickets at Kimberley, 104 runs at Paarl and 200 runs at East London. Captain Mashrafe Mortaza was left in utter despair following the rout. To add to their woes, a new controversy has cropped up.

Bangladesh players found in casino: Nasir Hossain, Taskin Ahmed and Shafiul Islam were spotted at a casino in East London. The players visited the casino less than three hours after their ODI whitewash and returned to their hotel at 10.34 PM 34 minutes after the time stipulated by the team management.

Bangladesh Cricket Board s (BCB) take on the incident: BCB President Nazmul Hasan told Cricbuzz: We will definitely investigate the matter and [take] appropriate action. Let us get the report from the team management after the tour. If it was a matter of one player we could have taken a drastic step but as there are three cricketers involved and we need some time.
