Controversy and Shakib Al Hasan seem to go hand-in-hand in cricket and outside cricket too! The Bangladesh skipper, known for being quite outspoken and kicking stumps on the field, has once again found himself in controversial circumstances. Though this time, it isn't a cricket field but before winning the Parliament elections wherein he is seen slapping a fan. (More Cricket News)

In a video surfaced online, Shakib can be seen accidentally being pushed by a fan, that led to the former getting flustered and in turn delivers a tight slap to the individual's face.

Reports in Bangladesh suggest the incident took place outside a polling booth where Shakib had come to cast his vote. The video,  that shows Shakib angrily reacting to the fan and slapping him, really does not provide a clear picture as to why the cricketer slapped the fan.

Just few days ago, a video had appeared where it shown Shakib seated on a stage as fans gather around him for selfies. As he obliges their request of a selfie, the lack of enthusiasm around his face is palpable with suggestions that he wasn't too pleased with a crowd around him asking for selfies.

Earlier, the Bangladesh national cricket team skipper won a seat in the country's parliament on Sunday after a landslide victory in the general election boycotted by the opposition. 

The 36-year-old all-rounder, who is the captain of his cricket side in all formats, beat his rival by a margin of 150,000 votes in his constituency in the western town of Magura, the district's chief administrator Abu Naser Beg said.
