Bangladeshi cricketer Tanzim Hasan Sakib has had to apologise to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) for a number of offensive Facebook posts from the past, which resurfaced after his international debut at the Asia Cup last week, report agencies.

Some of the posts date back to 2014, and BCB cricket operations chair Jalal Yunus said Tanzim was repentant about his posts and took full responsibility for them.

In a Facebook post from September 2022, he wrote in Bangla: "A working woman will not allow her husband or children to have their way with her; she loses her charm, destroys her family, her purdah, and the society."

"The cricket operations committee spoke to Tanzim Sakib on behalf of the Bangladesh Cricket Board," Yunus said at a press conference at the Sher-e- Bangla National Stadium on Tuesday.

"We have engaged with Tanzim," stated Jalal Younus, chairman of cricket operations of the BCB."
