Two UAE cricketers found guilty of match fixing, ICC banned for 8 years

Two United Arab Emirates (UAE) cricketers have been banned by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for eight years after being found guilty of match-fixing. UAE’s Amir Hayat and Ashfaq Ahmad have been found guilty of violating the ICC’s five rules on corruption last year. It was alleged that taking money or gifts during the T20 World Cup qualifier in the UAE in 2019 had an impact on the outcome of the match. The ICC suspended him at the same time. But now he has been found guilty of match-fixing.

According to a report by Cricbuzz, the ICC temporarily suspended both cricketers on 13 September 2020. The ICC said in a statement that the cricketers were found guilty of five offenses and that they had also confessed to their crime.
