In a shock, ICC bans Bangladesh Captain Shakib Al Hasan from all forms of cricket for 2 years

ISLAMABAD -In a shock, International Cricket Council bans Bangladesh Captain Shakib Al Hasan from all forms of cricket for 2 years.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday banned Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan from all cricket for two years, with one year of that suspended, after he accepted three charges of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code.

Shakib, according to Bangladesh daily *Samakal link*, had failed to report to the ICC a corruption proposal made by a blacklisted bookie two years ago.

Shakib, the publication stated, had turned down the approach but failed to report the offer to the ICC's Anti-Corruption Department, which the global governing body requires in such cases.

“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," Shakib is quoted as saying in an ICC press release.
