DUBAI: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has banned UAE player Qadeer Ahmed Khan from all forms of cricket for five years after he admitted breaching six counts of the ICC Anti-Corruption Code for which he was charged in October 2019.
The 35-year-old right-arm medium-fast bowler has played 11 One-day Internationals and 10 T20Is and taken eight and nine wickets, respectively for UAE.
ICC general manager, Integrity Unit, Alex Marshall said in a statement on Wednesday that, "Qadeer Khan is an experienced international cricketer who has received anti-corruption training. He should have avoided the people he knew were corrupt and reported any suspicions immediately.
"He (Qadeer) has accepted he did wrong and requested an agreed sanction in place of a Tribunal. His five-year period of ineligibility is a reflection of the seriousness of his breaches and the number of charges. (IANS)
