Bangladesh all-rounder Nasir Hossain has been charged with corruption relating to the 2020-21 edition of the Abu Dhabi T10 tournament. Hossain is one of eight people who have been charged by the ICC’s anti-corruption unit (ACU), all of whom are associated with the Pune Devils franchise.

Here is the list:

  • Krisan Kumar Chaudhary and Parag Sanghvi (Devils’ co-owners)
  • Nasir Hossain
  • Rizwan Javed and Saliya Saman (domestic players)
  • Ashar Zaidi (batting coach)
  • Sunny Dhillon (assistant coach)
  • Shadab Ahamed (team manager)

According to ESPNcricinfo, the ACU “disrupted” attempts by well-known corruptors to influence Devils’ players and management to influence matches. All eight have been charged with not reporting corrupt approaches plus failing to cooperate in the investigation.

Also, Sanghvi, one of the co-owners has been charged with “placing bets on the results, progress” of a match. Zaidi, Javed, Saman and Dhillon face charges of “being party to an attempt to fix, contrive or influence improperly matches or aspects of matches.”

Javed and Saman also face a separate charge of “offering a reward in exchange for that player engaging in”.

Nasir Hossain, who played his last of his 115 internationals for Bangladesh back in 2018, has been charged for not reporting receiving a gift worth more than US$750. This is mandatory under the ACU code.

All eight have two weeks to respond to the charges from Tuesday, 19 September.
