Mushfiqur Rahim sends legal notice to Channel for accusing Bangladesh batter of spotfixing

Srinagar: Former Bangladesh skipper and star player Mushfiqur Rahim has served legal notice to a TV channel for accusing star batter of spotfixing after getting out in unusual manner.

Mushfiqur during secondTest match against New Zealand at home, became the victim of a rare dismissal.
He used his hands to steer the ball away while standing around the stumps, and was dismissed for obstructing the field during an over from New Zealand’s Kyle Jamieson.

Rahim became the first player ever from Bangladesh to have been dismissed in the fashion. He joined the rare list of cricketers, including the likes of Mohinder Amarnath, Mohsin Khan, Michael Vaughan, etc. to have been dismissed in the manner.

After the incident, a Bangladesh channel – Ekattor TV – on December 6 accused that the dismissal may have been linked to spot-fixing, according to a report in Cricbuzz.

Later, the channel removed the news from their digital platform and apologised to Mushfiqur Rahim.

The star player has now served a legal notice to Ekattor TV for defaming him with the report.
