Three Hong Kong cricketers have been charged with breaching the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Anti-Corruption Code –including match-fixing – and have been provisionally suspended pending an investigation according to the ICC.
Irfan Ahmed – who had already served a 30-month ban – Nadeem Ahmed and Haseeb Amjad, 30, have been charged by the ICC on a total of 19 counts of breaching the code. Irfan faces nine charges, while Nadeem and Hasib face five charges each.
Irfan Ahmed and Nadeem Ahmed played against Bermuda during the ICC World Cricket League Division Two at Dubai, April 9th, 2011.
“The players have 14 days from October 8th, 2018 to respond to the charges. The ICC will not make any further comment in respect of these charges at this stage,” the ICC said on its website.
Irfan ended a suspension on May 4th, 2018, having been found guilty of failing to report requests to fix matches several times between January 2012 and January 2014, although he did not act on any of the approaches.
