Dhaka: Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib-Al-Hasan has banned for two year by the International Cricket Council for failing to report corrupt approaches on numerous occasions.

According to a Bangladesh daily 'Samakal' report Shakib was approached by a blacklisted bookie two years back. The player rejected the offer; however, he did not report the incident to the ICC's Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU).

If Shakib is banned, then he won't be able to take part in the upcoming three T20Is and two Tests against India.
