Cricket news - Shahadat handed five-year ban for assault

Shahadat has been banned for five years, with two years suspended

Shahadat Hossain, the former Bangladesh Test pacer, has been handed a five-year ban (with two years suspended) and fined Taka 3 lakh for assaulting teammate Arafat Sunny during the ongoing National Cricket League. The incident took place during the second day's play between Dhaka Division and Khulna Division at the Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna.

Arafat had reportedly said that Shahadat was not competent to shine one side of the ball, which angered the pacer who then attacked Sunny. Shahadat accepted the verdict of the match referee, which was then passed on to the technical committee of BCB, who eventually came up with the decision of penalising and suspending the player.
