Bangladesh all-rounder Nasir Hossain, who played his last international game in January 2018, is facing corruption charges from the International Cricket Council's (ICC) anti-corruption unit (ACU).
The charges relate to the 2020-21 edition of the Abu Dhabi T10 tournament, in which Hossain was involved with the Pune Devils franchise.
Hossain is one of eight people who have been charged, including two co-owners of the Devils franchise, two domestic players, and three members of the coaching staff. The charges include betting and related corrupt practices.
Nasir Hossain is specifically accused of failing to report receiving a gift worth more than USD 750, which is an offence under the ACU code.
He is also accused of being party to an attempt to fix, contrive, or influence improperly matches or aspects of matches.
The other seven people who have been charged are:
- Krishan Kumar Chaudhary and Parag Sanghvi (co-owners of the Devils franchise)
- Rizwan Javed and Saliya Saman (domestic players)
- Ashar Zaidi (batting coach)
- Sunny Dhillon (assistant coach)
- Shadab Ahamed (team manager)
The eight people have two weeks to respond to the charges, starting from September 19.
