BEN Stokes, Bangladesh and handshakes — some things just don’t get along.

A week after his run-in with Tamim Iqbal at the end of the second one-day international in Mirpur, Stokes chose not to shake the hand of Abdul Mazid on day one of a tour match against the Bangladesh Cricket Board XI.

In fairness to the all-rounder it’s not entirely clear why Mazid was looking for a handshake at the lunch interval.
