Shakib Al Hasan banned from cricket in regards to corruption issue during IPL

Bangladesh star cricketer and world number one all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been banned from all forms of cricket for the next two years with one year suspended after he accepted his breach of the ICC code. The charges are as follows

  1. Engage in Corrupt Conduct - in relation to Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe Tri-Series in January 2018 and / or the 2018 IPL
     
  2. 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
     
  3. 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 an IPL 2018 match between Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kings XI Punjab on 26 April 2018.

Shakib has stated “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. 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. Like the majority of players and fans around the world, I want cricket to be a corruption-free sport and I am looking forward to working with the ICC ACU team to support their education programme and ensure young players don’t make the same mistake I did.”

Since Shakib has accepted his error he is free to resume his international cricket from October 29th 2020. Its a huge disappointment for fans of the allrounder as well as Bangladesh cricket as the team is set to play India in a T20I and Test series from November 3rd.
