Dhaka: Bangladesh's premier all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan will miss Saturday's final one-dayer against Sri Lanka and the first two matches of the Asia Cup after being banned for making a lewd gesture on live television.

Shakib pointed towards his crotch and then towards the camera that was focused on him in the players' balcony soon after his dismissal for 24 during the second one-dayer in Dhaka on Thursday.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), which conducted a disciplinary hearing on Friday, suspended the 26-year-old for three one-day internationals and fined him 300,000 Bangladesh taka (USD 3,860).
