ISLAMABAD  –    Wicketkeeper-batter Gulam Shabbir of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has been banned from all cricket for 4 years after admitting breaching six counts of the ICC Anti-Corruption Code, the ICC stated in a press assertion on Monday. Gulam admitted to being in breach of the ICC codes. Because of the admissions, he has accepted a sanction of a four-year interval of ineligibility which ends at midnight on August 20, 2025. Alex Marshall, ICC Normal Supervisor – Integrity Unit, stated: “Shabbir performed 40 matches for the UAE and was anticipated to know his duties as a global cricketer. He additionally attended a minimum of three anti-corruption training periods wherein gamers have been reminded of their obligations to report any approaches by corrupters. “It was disappointing to notice that he didn’t report any of the approaches. Though he was cooperative when interviewed and expressed regret, it is just applicable that he be banned so {that a} robust message goes out to different gamers and potential corrupters.”
