Gulam Shabbir, the UAE wicket-keeper-batsman, has been handed a four-year ban from all cricket after he admitted to breaching six counts of the ICC anti-corruption code.

Shabbir has accepted the sanctions and his period of ineligibility ends at midnight on August 20, 2025.

Shabbir was found to have breached Article 2.4.4 twice. He failed “to disclose to the ACU full details of attempted approaches to engage in corrupt conduct” during the series against Nepal in January-February 2019 and the series against Zimbabwe in April in the same year.

He also breached Article 2.4.5 two times. He failed to inform the anti-corruption authorities the “full details of an approach received by a teammate to engage in corrupt conduct in relation to the series against Zimbabwe in April 2019.”

Shabbir also failed “to disclose to the ACU full details of facts and/or incidents that he was aware of which may have evidenced corrupt conduct by other Participants.” (Agencies)
