National fast bowler Shahadat Hossain has received a five-year ban for assaulting his Dhaka Division teammate Arafat Sunny Junior during a first-class match in Khulna.

Shahadat was also fined Taka 3 lakh in this connection. 

The NCL technical committee met on Tuesday to decide on the quantum of punishment.

However, the board has kept opportunity for the right-arm pacer Shahadat to appeal against the verdict till November 26.

The temperamental 33-year-old fast bowler, who has featured in 38 Tests, 51 ODIs and six T20Is, is alleged to have hit team-mate Arafat Sunny, apparently following an argument about shining the ball during their sides encounter against Khulna Division on the second day at the Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium on Sunday.

The disciplinary breach is yet another blot on Shahadat's career, which hit a dead end of sorts since he was arrested in 2015 for beating up his domestic help, which led to a temporary suspension.
