United Arab Emirates players Amir Hayat and Ashfaq Ahmed have been banned from all cricket for eight years after breaching the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption code, the governing body announced on Thursday.
The ICC anti-corruption tribunal found both players guilty of "seeking, accepting, offering or agreeing to accept any bribe or other reward" to influence matches.
They were also found guilty on a range of other charges related to corruption.
"Their lengthy ban should serve as a warning to others."
