Bangladesh batsman Raqibul Hasan has had his contract terminated and will not be considered for international selection for three months, the Bangladesh Cricket Board confirmed.
The 22-year-old announced his retirement from international cricket on the eve of the first Test against England, only to change his mind a few days later.
Raqibul was apparently upset after being dropped for the one-day series against England and missing out on the 30-member provisional squad for the ICC Twenty20 World Cup.
But the BCB have come crashing down on the youngster's behaviour and released the following statement: "It was a serious breach of discipline on the part of a contracted player and unbecoming of an international cricketer.
"As such the Board has terminated his contract with immediate effect and he will not be considered for selection in the national team for three months effective from 19 March.
"However he will be allowed to participate in domestic cricket competitions."
