Bangladeshi fast bowler banned for attacking a teammate

Bangladeshi International professional cricketer Shahadat Hossain who plays as a fast bowler and knows as the fastest bowler in the history of Bangladesh cricket. On Sunday, after a National Cricket League match, this Bangladeshi Fast bowler has banned for attacking a teammate. According to the report of umpires he was seen to kicking and slapping one of his teammates during a match of National cricket league. 

Bangladesh Cricket Board decided to ban him for 3 years with including a suspension of 2 years and a fine of 3,540 USD which was submitted by Shahadat for a charge of physical harassment, said a board official.

Minhajul Abedin who is chief of the technical committee of BCB said –

 we decided to punish him with judging his past history, and it is for 5 years. Last 2 years he will be suspended of this 5 years punishment.

Here to be noted, in September 2015 Shahadat and his wife were arrested by police for torturing and beating an 11-year-old girl who was employed as their housemaid. However, they proved them self clear when a trial has started for this case but was restrained for two months. It also came to light after beating a rickshaw driver for a little scratch on his car in Dhaka. 

During a match of national cricket league between Dhaka and Khulna, this fast bowler was seen to attack a young bowler Arafat Sunny Jr. After a misunderstanding over the matter of how to shine the ball. 


This Bangladesh national team’s cricketer has denied the allegation of kicking and slapping Arafat Sunny, he said that the matter happened on a tense moment. While on an interview with AFP. But Shahadat confesses his mistake, he said the physical harassing complaint is completely wrong he just pushed Arafat and The 33-year-old bowler is going to appeal against the punishment decision.

A six-month ban or something like that is nice for this crime but 5 years ban is too harsh for me. Shahadat Hossain, as an international cricketer played 38 Tests and 51 one-day international matches for Bangladesh cricket team.
