Nasir Hossain, a Bangladesh all-rounder, has been banned from all cricket after admitting to violating the ICC Anti-Corruption Code while competing in the Abu Dhabi T10 League in 2021.
Nasir, who was accused by the ICC in September 2023, agreed to three offences and received a two-year suspension, six months of which were suspended.
Nasir is among eight people indicted by the International Criminal Court for violating the Anti-Corruption Code.
He confessed to three charges:
— Breach of Article 2.4.3 of the Code in that he failed to declare to the Designated Anti-Corruption Official (without undue delay) the receipt of a gift valued at more than US$750, namely a new iPhone 12.
– –In violation of Article 2.4.4 of the Code, he neglected to report to the Designated Anti-Corruption Official the complete specifics of the approach or invitation he received to participate in Corrupt Conduct using the 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 in relation to possible Corrupt Conduct under the Code, including (without limitation) failing to provide accurately and completely any information and/or documentation requested by the Designated Anti-Corruption Official (whether as part of a formal Demand pursuant to Article 4.3 or otherwise).
Nasir was held out of the BPL draft due to an ICC probe.
Between 2011 and 2018, Nasir played 115 matches for Bangladesh across all forms, amassing 2695 runs and capturing 39 wickets.
He has mostly played on the local circuit since then, most notably for Prime Bank Cricket Club in the Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League.
Nasir will be able to rejoin international cricket on April 7, 2025, as long as he meets the terms outlined in the suspended portion of the sentence.
