Bangladesh paceman Shahadat Hossain was handed a ban by the Bangladesh Cricket Board for assaulting a team member.
Shadat assaulted teammate Arafat Sunny junior during a National Cricket League (NCL) match last Sunday. His actions amounted to a level 4 offence of the BCB code of conduct. As a result Shahadat was penalized for five years.
NCL technical committee comprising of former national Captain Minhazul Abedin, decided on the pacer’s punishment on Tuesday. 33 year old Shahadat played 38 Test and 51 ODIs for Bangladesh. His last appearance was in 2013.
A disciplinary breach is not new for Shahadat as he was arrested in 2015 for beating up his domestic help.
