Legends of Rupganj batsman Sabbir Rahman claimed his innocence after being showcaused by his club for not making him available during their DPL super league game against Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club in Fatullah on Wednesday.
 Rupganj Secretary Torikul Islam told The Daily Sun on Thursday that they have issued a show cause letter to Sabbir as he failed to reach the field before the start of the game.
“We could not communicate with him despite several attempts and it was unacceptable,” said Torikul.
However, Sabbir told reporters that his wife was sick and he informed the matter to his skipper Mashrafe bin Mortaza.
“I called Mashrafe bhai at 08:20am in the morning and told him that I could not sleep the whole night because my wife was sick and so could not get up on time. He said that there is traffic on the road and so it is better to return home than try to reach the venue,” said Sabbir.
