The all-rounder has been banned after breaching three conducts of ICC’s Anti-Corruption Code. He can play cricket again from October 29, 2020. As things stand, he will miss the upcoming T20I World Cup in Australia as well.

Shakib joined the MCC World Cricket committee in October 2017 and has subsequently attended meetings in both Sydney and Bengaluru. The MCC World Cricket committee is an independent body comprised of current and former international cricketers and umpires from across the globe, meeting twice yearly to discuss the prevalent issues in the game. The next meeting is due to take place in Sri Lanka in March 2020.

Mike Gatting, Chairman of the World Cricket committee said:

“We are sorry to lose Shakib from the committee, where he has made a great contribution over the last couple of years. As guardians of the Spirit of Cricket we support his resignation and believe this was the right decision.”
