Shahriar Nafees, the Bangladesh batsman, has been handed a suspended ban but will be part of the A side for their next match later this month. The announcement was made after Bangladesh Cricket Board president Mustafa Kamal met with chief selector Akram Khan and the disciplinary committee chairman Sirajuddin Mohammad Alamgir on Wednesday.

The A team's management had submitted a strong letter against Nafees after he showed dissent at an umpire's decision during a match of the Shafi Darashah tournament in Bangalore last month. He was sent home on the basis of the management's letter to the cricket operations committee.

Akram confirmed Nafees will be joining the Bangladesh A team next week to prepare for the four-day game against the West Indies' High Performance Centre side from September 22. Nafees had apologised for his actions at a hearing on Tuesday.

"The suspended ban will be in place for an indefinite period but if he [Shariar Nafees] does anything untoward in the future, he will be banned for six months," said Alamgir, who had his committee's recommendations ratified by the BCB chief.

Nafees had apologised for his actions at a hearing on Tuesday.
