Right-arm pacer Mohammad Shahid and batsman Arafat Sunny jr have each been handed one-year suspended bans for breaching the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) code of conduct during the National Cricket League. 

The duo has been found guilty in the same case where the board earlier handed a five-year suspended ban to out of favor national pacer Shahadat Hossain.

Both Shahid and Arafat will be able to play cricket during this suspension period, but remain under the scanner. If they are found to be involved in any other issue in future, regardless of whether it is on or off the field, the ban will be activated immediately.

Dhaka Division pacer Shahadat was withdrawn from the game against Khulna Division after allegedly hitting Arafat following an argument about shining the ball. The BCB disciplinary committee called both Shahid and Arafat for a hearing and after their involvement in the issue was proven, the duo were adjudged guilty of level 2 offences for provoking Shahadat.

Arafat had refused to shine the ball for Shahadat during the game, which had triggered the tussle, while Shahid incited the incident.

“They [Shahid and Arafat] have been suspended for their unacceptable behavior on the field. Their behavior will now be monitored and the ban will be implemented if they are found guilty of any breach of the code of behavior in the future,” NCL technical committee chairman and chief of the national selection panel Minhajul Abedin told the media.

Shahadat, who has appeared in 38 Tests, 51 ODIs and six T20Is for Bangladesh, has been out of the national team since his arrest in 2015 for assaulting his domestic help. The incident led to the cricketer being temporarily suspended by the BCB. 

On the other hand, Shahid, who has played five Tests so far, has also been out of the Test arena since 2015, when he made his debut. The cricketer also played a T20I in 2016, which was his last international match.
