Bangladesh women’s team manager Javed Omar has come under radar, from the global governing body of cricket, for suspicious activity against his team during the 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia. According to a report in cricbuzz, Javed Omar will not be able to take any part as Bangladesh Cricket Board representative in future ICC events, a board official confirmed the website.
Javed Omar, the former Bangladesh opener, was named the manager of the women’s team for a few series. He represented Bangladesh in 40 Tests and 59 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) before taking up the managerial role. Omar was also a part-time leg-spinner for the national team.
Bangladesh women’s team manager allegedly passed on team information
Bangladesh women’s team manager Javed Omar allegedly passed on his team information, according to Cricbuzz. The website understands that the cricket’s supreme governing body has requested BCB not to include the former player in any further ICC events after having followed his activities during the tournament, Cricbuzz reported.
“Yes we’ve been informed by the ICC to not include him in any future event,” a top BCB official confirmed on conditions of anonymity to the website. “To be honest, it is quite disappointing,” he added.
As per the report, Omar was kept under constant scanner by the global governing body, and once there were a few evidence against him, the board urged BCB to exclude him.
Omar has scored 1720 Test runs and 1312 runs in ODIs. He averaged around 24 in both the formats and played his last international match in 2007.
