Cricketer Shahadat Hossain beats teammate during national league match

Bangladesh pacer Shahadat Hossain Razib is infamous for his aggressive mentality. He had drawn widespread criticism for beating a housemaid several years ago. Now, he struck the media headlines by beating his teammate Mohammad Arafat.

The incident took place during the National Cricket League (NCL) match between Dhaka Division and Khulna Division at Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna on Sunday.

During the second day of the match, Shahadat Hossain started firing when he failed to control his anger against teammate Mohammad Arafat.

In the first innings, Khulna Division were batting in reply to Dhaka Division’s 279 runs. Pacer Shahadat instructed Arafat to rub a certain part of the ball. Arafat did not agree and Shahadat also didn’t able to control his anger. The 33-year old pacer slapped Arafat in the field.

The match referee Akhtar Ahmed had already submitted the matter in his report to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). Now, it is obvious that he he’s going to get a punishment from BCB.

Earlier, in 2015, Shahadat and his wife had been jailed for torture on domestic workers. Even after that incident, humble behavior did not come to him. He was trying to get his hands on a CNG driver at Asad Gate in the capital last year is not an old story either.
