The 57-year-old’s relations with the Bangladesh Cricket Board have soured after he criticized Shakib for his central role in the “time-out” controversy involving Sri Lanka’s Angelo Mathews on Monday.
Mathews had exceeded the two minutes allowed for a batsman to take a strike while attempting to put a bandage on his helmet in a World Cup thriller in New Delhi.
Shakib refused to withdraw his appeal and Mathews became the first player in the 146-year history of international cricket to be given time out.
“I think it really took a toll on Bangladesh’s clinical performance. To be honest, I’m still a little surprised about it. It’s just my values that I have as a person and as a cricketer,” Donald told the Cricblog website.
