Eight-year ban for UAE cricketers found guilty of corruption
UAE's Mohammed Naveed and Shaiman Anwar were both handed eight-year bans from all cricket by the ICC on Tuesday after being found guilty of corruption by an independent anti-graft tribunal in January.
"Naveed was the captain and leading wicket taker. Anwar was the opening bat. Both had long international careers and were well versed in the threat from match fixers," said Alex Marshall, who heads up the International Cricket Council's Integrity Unit, in a statement.
"This should serve as a warning to any cricketer who considers taking the wrong path."
