BCB suspend Shahadat activities of board jurisdiction
14 Septembar 2015, Nirapad News: The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has temporarily suspended cricketer Kazi
Shahadat Hossain from participating in any activity under the Board’s jurisdiction including playing in
competitions and using facilities for training and rehabilitation.
The BCB’s decision was prompted by recent reports of alleged criminal offences involving the player which are
being investigated by the police.
BCB CEO Nizam Uddin Chowdhury said: “We have taken the usual route in dealing with such matters. The BCB has a
zero tolerance policy on acts of indiscretion by registered cricket players and we have noted the serious
allegations against Shahadat.
We will not try to draw conclusions as this matter is still being investigated. However, he will not be allowed
to play in BCB events or train with BCB support until further notice because the accusations have embarrassed the
board,” said a BCB press release today.
