Bangladesh cricket condition is now upside down with the news of Shakib likely to be banned for 18 months from all international cricket matches. However, not the BCB, the ICC itself is going to ban the world’s top all-rounder, according to concerned BCB sources.
So far, there is no formal notice has been received from the International Cricket Council (ICC) or Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) in this regard. But it is quite certain that the Tiger skipper is receiving the punishment.
But what are the allegations that lead him to ban for 18 months from the international area? — accroding to BCB sources, it is learned that ‘The allegation is related to match-fixing!’
It is learned that Shakib got a proposal from gamblers for match-fixing but he returned back that offer. But now the main question is ‘why would he be punished if he did not do any fixing?’
According to BCB sources, though Shakib returned back the gamblers’ offers — he violated the rules and regulations of ICC. Therefore, he will be punished by the global governing body of cricket. The ICC has always been in a strict position against corruption.

According to ICC’s Anti-Corruption Rule 2.4.4 article “Failing to disclose to the ACU (without unnecessary delay) full details of any approaches or invitations received by the Participant to engage in Corrupt Conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code.”
So that means, if anyone is offered to engage in any corruption under the ICC Anti-Corruption Code, the full details must be immediately reported to the ICC. But failing to disclose the details is considered as a crime. The ICC has imposed a minimum of 6 months and a maximum of 5 years of ban on the offense.
Shakib did not report the ICC about the incident even though he did not involve in match-fixing. ACU, the ICC’s Anti-Corruption Unit, caught this while investigating the call list of a gambler who is on the blacklist of ICC.
But Shakib helped the ICC during a detailed investigation. He also defended himself there. According to the investigation, ‘As he took the proposal lightly, he did not inform the matter to ICC’. However, Shakib admitted his mistake.
The all-rounder’s penalty may have been slightly reduced as he helped in the investigation. However, sources say, the punishment could be up to an 18-month (one-and-a-half-year) ban.
It is known that the penalty can be reduced a bit if any accused player applies for a reduction of the punishment. However, it is unlikely to be less than 6 months.
If Shakib is banned, not only he, it will be a big challenge for the national team as well.
