Shoaib Malik, the former Pakistan skipper, found himself in the midst of controversy following his third marriage to Sana Javed, triggering a significant social media backlash. However, matters took a turn for the worse on Friday (January 26), as his contract with Fortune Barishal in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) faced termination.

Responding to the mounting suspicions, The Barishal franchise took decisive action by terminating Malik’s contract, as reported by a Bangladesh-based journalist on social media.

It’s not Fixing he was just arranging money for his next marriage 👩🏻‍❤️‍👨🏻#ShoaibMalik

Shoaib Malik is very intelligent.

Just to get rid of his 3 marriage gaaliyan, he bowled 3 no balls to divert his gaaliyan.

Both India and Pakistan shouldn’t forget the fact that he deserves more abuse for his 3 marriages.@realshoaibmalik

Real shoaib malik is unreal😂😂

Malik’s suspension echoes past match-fixing concerns

This incident adds to a history of match-fixing suspicions involving Pakistan players, including the infamous case of Mohammed Amir, who admitted to spot-fixing in 2010, leading to a five-year ban. Despite Amir’s subsequent retirement from international cricket, he continues to participate in various franchise cricket leagues across the globe. The termination of Malik’s BPL contract raises broader questions about integrity and fair play in the realm of professional cricket.
