In what seems to be a disappointing piece of news for Bangladesh, all-rounder Nasir Hossain has been slapped with a 2-year ban by the Cricket Governing Body. The apex body of cricket took this decision after the cricketer accepted the charges of breaching the anti-corruption code.

Nasir accepted three charges which he was guilty in case of breaching the anti-corruption code.

The first charge was the breach of Article 2.4.3 of the code; in this charge, he didn’t reveal the receipt of a gift to the concerned Anti-Corruption official. The gift offered to him was of a cost of almost over US$750, which was nothing else than a new set of iPhone 12.

Here’s a look at the charges Nasir Hossain admitted under the Anti-Corruption code 

The second charge was for the breach of Article 2.4.4, in this charge, he didn’t provide the complete details of the second party who contacted or approached him and gifted him a new iPhone 12.

“Breach of Article 2.4.6 of the Code, in that he failed or refused, without compelling justification, to cooperate with the Designated Anti-Corruption Official’s investigation about possible Corrupt Conduct under the Code, including (without limitation) failing to provide accurately and complete any information and/or documentation requested by the Designated Anti-Corruption Official (whether as part of a formal Demand under Article 4.3 or otherwise) as part of such investigation,” reads the third charge which was slammed over Nasir Hossain by Cricket Governing Body.

Speaking of Nasir Hossain’s cricketing career, he made his first appearance for Bangladesh at the highest level of the game on August 14 2011 in the Harare ODI against Zimbabwe. After making his debut in 2011, Hossain played 19 Tests, 65 ODIs, and 31 T20Is for Bangladesh before playing his last international match against Sri Lanka in Mirpur ODI on January 25 2018.

Hossain scored 1044 Test runs, alongside 1281 ODI runs, 370 T20I runs with the bat and a total of 39 international wickets with the ball across all the formats.
