Dhaka right-arm paceman Shahadat Hossain has received a five-year ban, with two of those suspended, for assaulting teammate Arafat Sunny Jr during their National Cricket League match against Khulna at Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna Sunday.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board also fined the 33-year old Shahadat Tk3 lakhs.

The national discard has the chance to appeal against the verdict within the next seven days.

Chief of the BCB’s technical committee Minhajul Abedin said, “Shahadat did the same thing previously. It is a grave sin to raise your hands on your teammate. Hence, all the members of the committee were unanimous with this decision (five-year ban).”

It has been reported that the altercation took place after Shahadat had asked the 24-year old Arafat to shine the ball. 

When Arafat declined to do so, Shahadat assaulted him physically during the lunch break and match referee Akhtar Ahmed acknowledged the fact.

Shahadat had confessed to the assault, saying he lost his temper not only because Arafat declined to shine the ball, but also because the 24-year-old had replied harshly.

One of the officials of the tournament committee informed that Shahadat was withdrawn from the game before day three, and subsequently charged with a level-4 breach of the code of conduct.

This is the second time anger got the better of Shahadat, who has played 38 Test matches, 51 ODIs and six T20Is.

He had also hit the headlines for abusing his domestic help a couple of years ago.
