Shahadat Hossain faces yearlong ban after teammate assault

Dhaka: Former Bangladesh Test pacer Shahadat Hossain has faced a one-year ban from the National Cricket League by the Bangladesh Cricket Board for physically assaulting his teammate Sunny Arafat during the Day 2 of the match between Dhaka Division and Khulna Division.

Shahadat was reportedly angered when Arafat said that he was not competent enough to shine the ball, according to Cricbuzz, which prompted the assault. Other teammates then rushed to break the two apart.

Shahadat’s is a level four offence in the BCB Code of Conduct, and he is understood to accept the consequences he will face. “Under the level four offenses a player will be banned from participating in any BCB competition for one year while he will be slapped with a fine of Tk 50,000,” a BCB tournament official said.

Shahadat accepted the verdict and returned back home. We have given the report of the match referee to the technical committee and they will decide his future but he has been barred of taking part in this NCL game,” he added.

The fast bowler was even jailed for torturing an 11-year-old, which led to the BCB banning him from all forms of cricket. The ban, however, was lifted by the BCB on generous grounds as the case was still under jurisdiction and Shahadat was allowed to play the domestic matches.
