Shakib Al Hasan to face ICC ban

According to reports revealed in Dhaka on Tuesday, Bangladesh’s ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is going to face a ban by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for upholding match-fixing offer.

Clearing the air regarding the development, one of the officials of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said as quoted by the Daily Samakal,

“It is not of a incident of match-fixing and there is no allegations about such happening.

“ICC fairly stated that Shakib did not inform the matter of being offered from a bookie and that broke the Code of Conduct. But Shakib was not definitely involved in any corruption. There is definite knowledge of ACSU that Shakib hates any sort of immoral activity adjacent to the game of cricket,” he said.

BCB official further reckoned the matter is of a great adversity for the country.

Daily Samakal also reported that Shakib Al Hasan forgot to report the incident to ACSU therefore he admitted his mistake.

ICC Anti-Corruption Code:

2.4.4 Failing to disclose to the ACU (without unnecessary delay) full details of any approaches or invitations received by the Participant to engage in Corrupt Conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code.

NOTE: It is acknowledged that the fight against corruption requires prompt reporting of all such approaches and any unnecessary delay in doing so may undermine the effectiveness with which the ACU and other relevant anti-corruption bodies can protect the integrity of the sport.

It is acknowledged that the assessment of whether there had been ‘unnecessary delay’ in each case will depend on its own circumstances, but it is always unacceptable (and will therefore constitute ‘unnecessary delay’) for a Participant to wait until after the match in respect of which he/she was invited to engage in Corrupt Conduct before reporting that approach to the ACU.

Sanctions: A minimum of six (6) months and a maximum of five (5) years.
