Former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik has faced allegations of match-fixing during the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) over the termination of his contract. However, his franchise team Fortune Barishal has refuted the allegations, calling them baseless, followed by his own post on social media to address the situation.

The 41-year-old found himself embroiled in controversy this morning when Bangladesh media reported that his contract with Fortune Barishal was reportedly terminated over suspicions of match-fixing.

During a game against Khulna Riders, Malik’s bowling performance raised eyebrows as he delivered three consecutive no-balls, igniting suspicions of foul play. Additionally, his lackluster batting performance, scoring just five runs off six balls, further fueled speculation.

Shoaib Malik also left the BPL midway citing personal reasons, adding another layer of intrigue to the unfolding drama, which was blown out of proportion by Bangladeshi media.

Barishal Fortune’s media manager, Sikander, has vehemently refuted allegations of match-fixing on Shoaib Malik. He stated that Malik left the BPL due to personal reasons and was willing to come back on February 6, however, the BPL management rejected his request, which led to the termination of his contract.

Shoaib Malik also took to his official X (formerly Twitter) account to clarify and debunk the allegations. “I would like to address and dismiss the recent rumors circulating about my playing position with Fortune Barishal,” he posted.
