Controversy and Sabbir Rahman go hand-in-hand and the Bangladesh batsman has landed in yet another controversy. The right-handed batsman is facing the heat after being accused of thrashing a garbage hauler in front of his house. He reportedly had a verbal spat with the worker before he decided to assault the man.
Not very surprisingly, he is being slammed by the fans for his actions. Sabbir Rahman has faced the wrath of Bangladeshi fans time and again for his controversial actions. He is now being slammed for not setting a good example on social media following the incident.
However, the 28-year old has yet another issued a clarification and pleaded innocence. The Bangladesh star narrated the whole incident and insisted that he was not at fault. He stated that he was baffled by the reaction of the garbage hauler when he advised him to leave space for other people by not parking a vehicle in the middle of the road.
“There was a garbage track in front of my house. I was coming home with my wife. I said, ‘Brother, you have left your car in the middle of the road, no one will be able to come and go’. If a patient wants to go now and you’re gossiping leaving the car in that way. Please don’t leave the car like this, keep it aside from the middle. I just said this. As soon as I sounded the horn, he reacted as if I had done something very wrong. His eyes were horrible and he’s muttering,” Sabbir Rahman as quoted by bdcrictime.
“I found it very strange. I said- brother, are you saying something? Why are you talking like this? I didn’t say anything bad. He told me- I am doing my job, who are you to say, why are you blowing the horn. That’s all, there just a little argument, nothing more,” he added.
He also refuted claims of attacking the person and insisted that the entire incident has been blown out of proportion.
“Cricket is my love, it’s my life. And I’m swearing to cricket that I didn’t beat that person. Past is past. I have learned a lot from the past. The ongoing rumours are baseless and nothing of such sorts has happened. It’s not easy to hit a person,” said Sabbir Rahman.
