ICC bans Bangladeshi cricketer Shakib Al Hasan



In cricket, Bangladesh Test and T20 Captain Shakib Al Hasan has been banned by the International Cricket Council (ICC) from all cricket for two years.

One year of the punishment has been suspended after he accepted three charges of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code.

Shakib was found guilty for not reporting to the ICC that he was approached by the bookies. He was approached by the bookies during the home tri-series against Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka last year in January.

He was approached a second time during the same series. Bookies approached him during the Indian Premier League match between Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kings XI Punjab in April 2018.
