Bangladesh cricket are in disarray after International Cricket Council (ICC) announced the suspension of Shakib Al Hasan for two years (one year suspended) on Tuesday ahead of the India tour.

ICC has banned Shakib from all formats of the game for two years with one year of that suspended, for accepting three charges of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code.

However in order to avoid the twelve (12) month suspended part of the sanction coming into effect, Shakib Al Hasan must comply, in full, with the following conditions during the period of the initial 12-month.

Meanwhile, former England captain Michael Vaughan is not impressed with the one-year suspension. He feels the ban should have been longer and portrayed Shakib’s errors as a serious sin.

“No sympathy what’s so ever for Shakib Al Hasan … Non what’s so ever … In this era the players get briefed all the time about what they can & cant do and what that have to report straight away … 2 yrs isn’t enough … Should have been longer,” he tweeted.

Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris also agreed with Vaughan and criticized Shakib by saying the suspension should have been at least two years.
