ICC bans Shakib for two years

MNA Sports Desk: Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh’s Test and T20I captain, has been banned by the ICC from all cricket for two years, with one year of that sentence suspended, after he accepted three charges of breaching the ICC anti-corruption code.

The charges are as follows:

Article 2.4.4 – Failure to disclose to the ACU full details of any approaches or invitations he received to engage in corrupt conduct – in relation to the Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe T20I tri-series in January 2018 and/or the 2018 IPL.

Article 2.4.4 – Failure to disclose to the ACU full details of any approaches or invitations he received to engage in corrupt conduct – in relation to a second approach in respect of the tri-series in January 2018.

Article 2.4.4 – Failure to disclose to the ACU full details of any approaches or invitations he received to engage in corrupt conduct – in relation to the Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kings XI Punjab match in IPL 2018 on April 26, 2018.

Subject to him satisfying the conditions in respect of the suspended part of the sanction, Shakib will be free to resume international cricket on October 29, 2020.

The ICC said that Shakib had accepted the charges and agreed to the sanction in lieu of an anti-corruption tribunal hearing.

“I am obviously extremely sad to have been banned from the game I love, but I completely accept my sanction for not reporting the approaches,” an ICC statement quoted him as saying. “The ICC ACU is reliant on players to play a central part in the fight against corruption and I didn’t do my duty in this instance.”
