  • Print


Sports Reporter :
Ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan's one-year ban ended on Wednesday. So, He will return to the all sorts of cricket competitions (domestic and international) from today.
Earlier, Shakib Al Hasan was banned by International Cricket Council (ICC) as he failed to report corrupt approaches to the authority.
Shakib Al Hasan and his family are now staying in the United States of America.
Shakib Al Hasan will compete in the five-team T20 Cricket competition from November 15. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) will arrange the cricket meet.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) banned Bangladesh all-rouder Shakib Al Hasan from all sorts of cricket for two years, with one year of that suspended, after he accepted three charges of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code last year.
One of the three changes was he failed to disclose to the Anti Corruption Unit (ACU) full details of any approaches or invitations he received to engage in Corrupt Conduct - in relation to the Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe Tri-Series in January 2018 and the 2018 IPL.
He also failed to disclose to the ACU full details of any approaches or invitations he received to engage in Corrupt Conduct - in relation to a second approach in respect of the Tri-Series in January 2018.
His another failure was to disclose to the ACU full details of any approaches or invitations he received to engage in Corrupt Conduct - in relation to an IPL 2018 match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab on April 26, 2018.
Shakib Al Hasan said, "I am obviously extremely sad to have been banned from the game I love, but I completely accept my sanction for not reporting the approaches. The ICC ACU is reliant on players to play a central part in the fight against corruption and I didn't do my duty in this instance."
