Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been banned by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for two years, with one year of that suspended. It was after he accepted three charges of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code of Conduct.

On three instances, the experienced cricketer failed to reveal the full details of any approaches or invitations he received to engage in Corrupt Conduct to the ACU. Shakib admitted to the charges and agreed to the sanction with the ICC in lieu of an Anti-Corruption Tribunal hearing.  If he can satisfy the conditions in respect of the suspended part of the sanction, he will be able to play cricket next year.

Cricket pundits reacted to Shakib’s ban. Most of them questioned how a player of Shakib’s stature missed reporting an approach not once but thrice, while others thought he deserved a harsher punishment. There were also some who found the timing of the incident odd, given the Bangladesh star leading a recent player revolt which was eventually resolved.
