Shahadat Hossain will miss the ongoing edition of the National Cricket League after being banned for assaulting a teammate.
The long-discarded Bangladesh fast bowler will miss the remainder of the ongoing National Cricket League after he was suspended by the Bangladesh Cricket Board for assaulting a teammate in Khulna.
The assault happened on the second day of play of the Dhaka Division’s showdown against Khulna Division. As said in some reports, he attacked Arafat Sunny after the latter said that he was not competent to shine one side of the leather.
This angered the speedster and charged at Sunny in the middle of the game. It took ample time before the players and umpires were able to halt the two and restore peace. The BCB then released an official statement regarding the bowler’s behaviour.
He was called back from the series after being charged with a level 4 offence in the BCB’s Code of Conduct. He is set to face a one-year ban as the technical committee will now take a call on his future.
‘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’, said an official regarding the incident. ‘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’.
