BCB allow Shahadat to play domestic cricket
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) have lifted the temporary suspension on Shahadat Hossain which will allow the fast bowler to play domestic cricket but he is still banned from playing for the Tigers until all his legal issues have been resolved.
The paceman was suspended from all cricket in September last year after a case was lodged against him and his wife on charges of assaulting their underage housemaid.
The 29-year-old Shahadat appealed against his suspension and won which means he can now compete in the ongoing Dhaka Premier League.
BCB chief executive Nizam Uddin Chowdhury said: "The BCB's disciplinary committee has taken the decision to withdraw the playing ban on Shahadat from humanitarian considerations following an appeal by the player.
"The ruling is applicable for participation in domestic cricket only. He will not be considered for national team selection until his legal issues are settled."
Shahadat had played 38 Tests, 51 ODIs and six T20Is for Bangladesh before he was suspended.
