ICC Banned UAE Batsmen Ghulam Shabbir From All Forms of Cricket for Four Years 

UAE cricketer Ghulam Shabbir has been convicted of violating the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) anti-corruption rules. ICC banned UAE wicketkeeper-batsman Ghulam Shabbir from all forms of cricket for four years. The ICC said in a statement on Monday (September 8th) that Shabbir himself had admitted to violating Article 6.

Shabbir has been accused of withholding information. He was also aware of the corruption of his teammates but did not report it to the ICC’s anti-corruption unit. Ghulam Shabbir received offers of corruption in the series against Nepal in January 2019 and against Zimbabwe in April. Another of his teammates in the same series did not inform the ICC when he was offered fixing.

There are also allegations against him for obstructing the investigation. Ghulam Shabbir tried to do what was needed to hide the information from the ICC’s anti-corruption unit. He later admitted the allegation. Ghulam Shabbir has played 23 ODIs and 16 T20Is for the UAE. The 35-year-old Shabbir’s ban will expire on August 20.
