Two Hong Kong cricketers banned for life

The International Cricket Council (ICC) have handed life bans to Hong Kong cricketing brothers Irfan Ahmed and Nadeem Ahmed also slapping a five-year ban from all forms of cricket to their teammate Haseeb Amjad for breaching the Anti-Corruption Code.

The ICC Anti-Corruption Tribunal heard evidence that all three players "fixed or contrived to fix matches" and "failed to disclose approaches to fix during a number of international fixtures across a two-year period", which also included a few matches in the World T20 in 2016.

“This has been a long and complex investigation which has uncovered systematic attempts to influence moments in matches by experienced international cricketers over a period of time,” ICC General Manager Alex Marshall said on the imposition of the ban on the players.
