Nasir Hossain banned from all forms of cricket for 2 years by ICC for corruption

  • January 16, 2024

Bangladeshi all-rounder Nasir Hossain, who is 32 years old, has admitted to breaking the ICC Anti-Corruption Code. He will now be banned for two years, with six months suspended. The ICC filed the charges in September 2023. They are linked to Hossain’s failure to disclose that he received an iPhone 12 as a gift worth more than US$750.

Besides that, he is accused of not helping the Anti-Corruption Official with his probe without a good reason.

Nasir Hossain, who played 115 matches for Bangladesh from 2011 to 2018, admits to all three charges. He scored 2695 runs and took 39 wickets in those matches. Hossain has been a well-known player in Bangladesh, most recently for Prime Bank Cricket Club in the Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League. His ban ends on April 7, 2025, as long as he meets the terms set out in the suspended part of the sanction.
