Three Hong Kong cricketers face ICC corruption charges

DUBAI: The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced Monday it had charged three Hong Kong players, including one who has already served a 30-month ban, with 19 counts of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code in matches played between 2014 and 2016.

Irfan Ahmed, who was banned from all cricket for two-and-a-half years in April 2016 after admitting breaches of the code, will face nine charges, while Irfan’s older brother Nadeem Ahmed and Haseeb Amjad each face five charges, the ICC said. The players have been provisionally suspended with immediate effect.
