Pacer Shahadat Hossain can play domestic matches, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has said.

The cricketer, charged with beating a minor house help, had earlier apologised to the nation for the "unexpected" event, reports bdnews24.com.

But the pacer will continue to serve an international ban until his criminal charges are settled, the BCB said on Tuesday.

He and his wife Jesmin Jahan were formally charged by a Women and Child Repression Prevention Tribunal on 22 February.

In September last year, Hossain filed a complaint with police, claiming his house help had gone missing.

But hours later, the 11-year-old girl surfaced to accuse the cricketer and his wife of subjecting her to regular torture.
