Aminul Islam Bulbul, Bangladesh's captain of first world cup campaign and the first Test centurion, was born on February 02 1968. The former Bangladesh captain turned 53 on Tuesday. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) posted on social media platforms - Facebook and Twitter - wishing the former right-handed batsman a happy birthday.
But he could not be happy with the good wishes of the BCB, rather, he expressed annoyance.
On Tuesday, the BCB posted a photo from their official Facebook page Bangladesh Cricket: The Tigers. The caption of the post reads, "He was the first Test centurion on Bangladesh's inaugural Test against India in November 2000. It is the second-highest in a nation's debut Test. Happy Birthday Aminul Islam Bulbul! Many many happy returns of the day."
BCB mistakenly posted a photo of the left-handed batsman, Imrul Kayes, who also celebrates his birthday today. The graphic above the picture of the left-handed batsman reads, 'Happy Birthday Imrul Kayes.' It did not take long to spread on social media.
The matter has also come to the notice of Aminul Islam Bulbul and he was rightly annoyed.
The former cricketer, who is currently in charge as the ICC's game development manager, posted a screenshot of the post from his Facebook account. Sharing the BCB post, he wrote, 'Happy Birthday to Imrul Kayes. We are not twins, but thanks BCB.'
That post was quickly removed by BCB and a new post with correct photo was published again. After that, BCB also wished Imrul Kayes was a happy birthday.
