Nasir Hossain, a player from Bangladesh, was charged along with seven other athletes, club owners, and administrators for allegedly breaking the Anti-Corruption Code during the 2021 Abu Dhabi T10 League.
It was now disclosed by the ICC on behalf of the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB).
Between November 19 and December 4, 2021, the event was held. In the tournament, six teams competed.
“The International Cricket Council (ICC), on behalf of the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB), has charged eight players and officials for breaching different counts of the ECB Anti-Corruption Code for Participants for the T10 League (the ‘Code’),” ICC said in a press release.
The claim made against Nasir was that he concealed a gift receipt worth more than US$750 from the Designated Anti-Corruption Official (DACO).
Nasir, who represented Bangladesh in 19 Tests, 65 ODIs, and 31 T20Is, failed to inform the DACO in full of any approaches or invitations he received to participate in corrupt conduct in violation of the Code.
He is charged with neglecting or refusing to comply with any DACO inquiry into potential corrupt conduct in violation of the Code without convincing justification.
“The charges relate to the 2021 Abu Dhabi T10 Cricket League and attempts to corrupt matches in that tournament – these attempts were disrupted. The ICC was appointed by the ECB as the Designated Anti-Corruption Official (DACO) for the purposes of the ECB’s Code for this tournament and as such are issuing these charges on the ECB’s behalf,” the ICC release said.
Co-owners of a team Krishan Kumar and Parag Sanghvi, batting coach Ashar Zaidi, domestic players Rizwan Javed and Saliya Saman, assistant coach Sunny Dhilon, and team manager Shadab Ahmed were also charged.
